Do you want to study science, but worry that you lack the confidence in the mathematics needed to do this? This book will help you to revise the mathematical skills you already have as well as learning and practising new ones. Mathematical techniques are explained and the book includes worked examples, many with a scientific flavour, and questions for you to try, all with fully worked solutions. The topics explained in the book include scientific notation, units of measurement, arithmetic with fractions, rearranging equations, using graphs, radians, trigonometry, logarithms, probability and descriptive statistics, whilst the techniques of statistical hypothesis testing and differentiation are both introduced briefly. Some knowledge of arithmetic is assumed, but other topics are taught from first principles.
