This free course provided an introduction to studying Mathematics at Level 2, especially the idea of a logarithm and how it turns a multiplication into an addition. You have read and analysed primary source material from the history of mathematics to find out more about how new mathematical ideas are produced and shared. These exercises were designed to develop your approach to study and learning at a distance and to help improve your confidence as an independent learner.
