Some resources identified by the Resource Centre
The following resources may be of use in learning to understand mathematics and how it relates to a particular discipline.
HELM (short for 'Helping Engineers Learn Mathematics') is a project funded by HEFCE through FDTL4 (2002-2005) and involved creating resources to aid the mathematical understanding of undergraduates in Engineering. It involved five Universities including Manchester.
The METAL project 'Mathematics for Economics : Enhancing Teaching and Learning' is funded by HEFCE through FDTL5 and involves many UK universities.
Free resources to support the transition from school mathematics to university mathematics in a range of disciplines Includes detailed notes, quick sheets,video, pod casts etc. covering a range of mathematical topics.
Some resources by the SIGMA centre for Excellence.
Some resources by the Mathstore the MSOR subject centre.
Some resources produced by the BBC (Bytesize etc).
Some Online video tutorials, with diagnostics, summary text and exercises, on arithmetic; algebra; functions, graphs & sequences; geometry & vectors, trigonometry, differentiation and integration.
Some Interactive web based pdf documents, Interactive web based pdf documents from the University of Plymouth. The files include notes, exercises and quizzes and so allow students to test their understanding of the material with immediate feedback. Packages include Basic Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus etc. and also Applications of Mathematics in Science and Engineering.
