Maths for Science free course icon Level 1 icon

Maths for Science

PLEASE NOTE: This course is being deleted from OpenLearn and will be replaced with a Badged Open Course – Maths for science and technology.Observation, measurement and the recording of data are central activities in science. Speculation and the development of new theories are crucial as well, but ultimately the predictions resulting from those theories have to be tested against what actually happens and this can only be done by making further measurements. Whether measurements are made using simple instruments such as rulers and thermometers, or involve sophisticated devices such as electron microscopes or lasers, there are decisions to be made about how the results are to be represented, what courses of measurements will be used and the precision to which the measurements will be made. In this free course, Maths for Science, we will consider these points in turn.
