This book is for students who either never obtained any formal qualifications in mathematics, or whose knowledge became rusty through prolonged lack of use. It explains mathematical concepts and topics, which are prerequisites for a student embarking on any science or other numerically based course in further and higher education. The text contains many worked examples, illustrations and exercises with solutions to reinforce understanding of the material. The emphasis is on a user-friendly approach and simplicity of style - which makes the book easy to study on its own, without any editorial help.

Arithmetic: basic operations with whole numbers; decimal numbers; fractions; ratios and percentages; calculator exercises; significance and scientific notation; answers to exercises. Algebra: using letters to represent numbers; algebraic operations; solving equations; indices applied to numbers and letters; the use of units - answers to exercises. Graphs: plotting points using Cartesian axes; reading a graph; straight line graphs; non-linear graphs; interpreting graphs; answers to exercises. Geometry and trigonometry: the circle; angles; triangles; similar triangles; introduction to trigonometry; answers to exercises. Appendix: logarithms, logarithmic graphs.
