Without a basic understanding of maths, students of any science discipline are ill-equipped to tackle new problems or to apply themselves to novel situations. In this book, Keith Gregson covers a few essential topics that will help encourage an understanding of mathematics so that the student can build on their understanding and apply it to their own scientific discipline.

Some of the converted persuaded him to write this book. While not teaching, Keith enjoys the equally challenging activities of climbing and mountaineering.
