This book is a completely revised and updated version of this invaluable text which allows science students to extend necessary skills and techniques, with the topics being developed through examples in science which are easily understood by students from a range of disciplines. The introductory approach eases students into the subject, progressing to cover topics relevant to first and second year study and support data analysis for final year projects.

The revision of the material in the book has been matched, on the accompanying website, with the extensive use of video, providing worked answers to over 200 questions in the book plus additional tutorial support. The second edition has also improved the learning approach for key topic areas to make it even more accessible and user–friendly, making it a perfect resource for students of all abilities. The expanding website provides a wide range of support material, providing a study environment within which students can develop their independent learning skills, in addition to providing resources that can be used by tutors for integration into other science–based programmes.

Hallmark Features:

  • Applied approach providing mathematics and statistics from the first to final years of undergraduate science courses.
  • Second edition substantially revised to improve the learning approach to key topics and the organisation of resources for ease of use in teaching.
  • Companion website at providing:
    • Over 200 videos showing step–by–step workings of problems in the book.

Review Text

  • By Xidi on 3 March 2010

    This book managed to get me through my statistics modules in the first and second years of my degree. Scientists need a way of analysing the data they churn our from their experiments, and all good experiments require repeat results and a range of variables to get the best conclusions. What you end up with is a ridiculous amount of data and a headache trying to understand what it all means. Not any more, thanks to the wonders of modern technology and brilliant minds like Dr. Graham Currell. Armed with Excel, minitab and a copy of this book it's not such a daunting task.The extensive library of online videos are fantastic. He'll take some equations or problems, and work through it several times with different data. It's easy to follow, and is useful when you just can't see it when it's written down on a page.I was lucky enough to have him as my teacher and tutorial leader in the first year before he retired. A great man, and a fantastic book.*Particularly useful in the fields of Forensics and Pharmaceuticals*
