This page links to a collection of resources for maths skills in the life sciences. The materials are divided up into 4 modules. Click on the blue text to go to that module.
Each module contains a variety of learning materials:
Audiovisual tutorials: You will need a soundcard and possibly headphones if using this in a shared facility; please be patient - it may take a little while to download. You may find that the material loads more quickly if you use the Mozilla Firefox browser, rather than Internet Explorer.
Practice Questions: If you need to increase the font size to make the text more readable, you can do so using your browser toolbar. In Internet Explorer this is through "View" then "Text Size"
Textbook Pages: These are downloadable pdf files that contain written explanations.
