The Nuffield Advanced Mathematics reader provided articles as background or extensions to topics covered elsewhere in the course. The aim was to encourage students to make further study of the development and applications of the ideas about which they were learning. This was one of the ways by which the course team illustrated how mathematical concepts new to the students had been used by to solve real-world problems.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
