Maths skills are required in most university degrees. Even if your course does not include specific maths subjects, maths underpins many subject areas. For example, statistical knowledge is needed in order to understand and interpret research findings that you will use in your assignments. In Business and Health Sciences, maths is required in specific subjects such as Statistics for Business, and Drug calculations for Nurses.
Learning maths is a cumulative process; that is, it is based on mastering basic skills that will allow you to tackle more complex problems or apply advanced formulas. This module reviews maths concepts and effective strategies to successfully deal with the maths components of your course. These concepts and strategies have been divided by subject areas. Statistical concepts are covered in a separate section, including an introduction to hypothesis testing.
