Foundation Maths


Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher or further education courses, who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited for those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, computer science, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. Even for those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study or distance learning.
