About this project
The aim of this project was to produce a library of portable, interactive, web-based support packages to help you learn various mathematical ideas and techniques and to support classroom teaching.
The packages are in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF). These packages introduce the mathematical ideas and their rules, and use the linking capabilities of PDF files to generate exercises and quizzes to allow you to test your understanding of the material with immediate feedback. We have also used our backgrounds in science to construct smaller support packages to show applications of mathematics in science and engineering.
These packages may be either worked through online or downloaded and used on any computer. To view the files, you will need the latest (free) version of Acrobat Reader.*
*Note: it is recommended to download the files in case of browser incompatibility.
Using the mathematics support materials is very simple, since the only instruction really needed is that all the selectable links in the PDFs are in green. There are a few basic types of links for you to be aware of:
- links connecting exercises to their solutions
- links for the solution to short quizzes
- links for longer quizzes which provide scores and give correct solutions.
There are also links in the tables of contents.
