Catch Up Maths & Stats covers the core maths skills you will need on any life or medical sciences course including:
- working with fractions and powers
- preparation of a dilution series
- how to calculate standard deviation
- using and understanding graphs
- analysing enzyme kinetics
- choosing the right statistical test
Over 200 examples are provided to show the relevance and application of maths and stats to your course. This second edition also now provides further coverage of differentiation and integration alongside nearly 70 more questions and answers to help you test your understanding.
