Abstract

Foundation Mathematics and Statistics provides the reader with a firm understanding of the maths and stats they will need for a computing degree or diploma. The book will give the reader competency in a range of mathematical tools required for technical subjects, and the confidence they will need in the classroom. Explanations of mathematical tools are supported by real world examples to make this subject accessible. Graded exercises enable the reader to practice and revise each topic. Starting with the basics of arithmetic and algebraic manipulation, the book covers everything from exponentials to logarithms. Providing a general grounding in proportions, ratios and percentages, this book will also help readers to understand probability and set theory. Finally, coverage includes the summary and presentation of statistical data and the drawing of histograms.
