Maths worksheets

TERTIARY STUDENTS, being either young adults or mature adults, seek non-juvenile means of learning and revision, and yet still have a bit of fun.  Hence these MATHS CONTENT GUIDES or WORKSHEETS are

  • for tertiary students in all disciplines (Business, Health and Social Sciences, STEM, Humanities, Law, …)
  • not to replace the learning done within enrolled Subjects, but provide often-required assistance
  • with fun in mind, can be either group or individual work, with each planned to involve only 5 minutes viewing/reading; any commitment over and above that depends on your willingness to engage with quizzes, videos, and exercises
  • developed by Student Learning, maths graduate academic staff (with further qualifications in other vocational disciplines) who are also trained experienced tertiary teachers, having applied mathematics in work and research situations. We also acknowledge links to Flinders and RMIT Universities, plus MrPatrick and other websites.
  • accessed as pdf files in the Topic in the tabs below
  • structured with some others as “pre-learning”, for cumulative learning, important in mathematics.

You are wished great success in your studies; feedback on the Guides is most welcome.

Maths by topics

There is one basic but important Guide within this topic, on Present and Future Values.

Geometry: Basic Geometry and Measurement meet most students’ needs; another Guide, on Trigonometry, can take a student on many paths that only a small proportion of students may need.

Matrices concentrates on the various methods of inversion.

 Some really useful free or cheap websites with our quick review, which we also recommend.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ArtofProblemSolving
This YouTube channel has about 300 videos on a wide range of topics, from ‘Junior High’ to “seniors’ level. The passionate presenter Richard is excellent; he uses great interactive graphics.

http://www.thefutureschannel.com/   This site has a huge variety of STEM (science, tech, maths and engineering) videos, with an emphasis on “Maths for the Real World”. It requires a bit of effort to find what you want, with no search facility yet (Aug 2015)

http://wolframalpha.com/
This site enables dynamic computations (try typing in “the inverse of 49”). It won’t define BODMAS but will help define ‘order of operations’. (Calculates any expression you type in, using those rules of order.)

http://www.mathtutor.ac.uk/
This is good for students transitioning to university.
The folk who developed this are also involved with mathscentre.com

http://www.cf.ac.uk/mathssupport/
This has refresher videos, booklets and online quizzes for students across many disciplines.

http://www.mathisfun.com/
Aimed at primary level, but not too-juvenile to be of use at tertiary level as a “bridging” tool.
