New entry maths study guide

You have chosen a worthwhile and rewarding career that involves a sound knowledge of mathematical principles which you will be taught to apply to modern ship operations. Whether you are training to become a deck or an engineering officer, one of the first courses you will take is a study of mathematics and, shortly after your arrival, you will be asked to take a test to assess your current level so that we are aware of the support you may need during this course.

As many students have different abilities and have studied mathematics to different levels, we have prepared this resource so that you can revise some of the topics you studied at GCSE or on equivalent professional courses. It should refresh and consolidate your basic knowledge so that you arrive at the University ready to commence your professional and academic courses. If you have a sound understanding of this work, you will be able to progress quickly to the applied section of your course with ample time to study new topics thoroughly. We have included exercises and answers so that you can test yourself as you work through this material.

To consolidate the mathematical knowledge that you need to be familiar with, the material contained within these files is presented in two folders, in zip format for you to download: one for future Deck cadets and one for future Engineering cadets. Select the folder that is of interest to you, and this will lead you to two further folders, one for HND entry and one for Foundation degree entry. Select the course that you are enrolling on and now you will find a number of pdf files. Click on these, and you are now ready to start studying.
