Many first year undergraduate chemistry students are daunted by the mathematical content of their courses. Mathematics in chemistry often presents an obstacle, preventing the student from grasping the chemical concepts and real ideas that lie behind the maths. This excellent workbook willhelp students to overcome this problem, which cannot be solved with a textbook. It aims to be a mathematics `toolkit' rather than a formal mathematics course. This flexibility allows the student to study alone or in a group. The material covered is taken from examples of first year chemistrycourses in approximately 6 x 3 hour sessions, providing a more comfortable and familiar way to learn. This workbook meets the needs of the student and is the best introduction to mathematics in chemistry available.
