Take your next steps with Maths
This free course, Maths everywhere, explores reasons for studying mathematics, practical applications of mathematical ideas and aims to help you to recognise mathematics when you come across it. It introduces the you to the graphics calculator, and takes you through a series of exercises from the Calculator Book, Tapping into Mathematics With the TI-83 Graphics Calculator. The course ends by asking you to reflect on the process of studying mathematics. In order to complete this free course you will need to have obtained a Texas Instruments TI-83 calculator and the book Tapping into Mathematics With the TI-83 Graphics Calculator (ISBN 0201175479).Learn more ❯Maths everywhere

PLEASE NOTE: This course is being deleted from OpenLearn in April 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.Learn more ❯Maths for Science
