As students of mathematics or its applications progress, courses focus increasingly on mathematical theories and applications themselves, and less on how to study these complex ideas.
Studying Mathematics and its Applications aims to bridge this gap by focusing on the essential skills needed by students, helping them to study more effectively and successfully. The book leads the student through tasks, demonstrating how to use examples and cope with symbols and encouraging them to use these tools to apply mathematics and construct proofs. Offering practical advice on assessment and modes of study, this book is an invaluable companion to any Mathematics or Applications of Mathematics course.
