Here are a few of the specialist mathematics books that we have in the Library that you may find useful.

Many of the books in this section are written for mathematicians so they can get very advanced towards the end. Do not worry if you find some of the questions or topics challenging this is expected.

Be aware that some books use different notation for the same or for similar concepts so always check what each mathematic symbol means in the book you are currently using.

You may find older or newer versions than those shown on here so please go ahead and use whichever is in stock since they don't tend to change drastically from one edition to the next.

- Maths from Scratch for Biologists by Alan J. CannISBN: 9780471498353Publication Date: 2002-12-30Numerical ability is an essential skill for everyone studying the biological sciences but many students are frightened by the 'perceived' difficulty of mathematics, and are nervous about applying mathematical skills in their chosen field of study. Having taught introductory maths and statistics for many years, Alan Cann understands these challenges and just how invaluable an accessible, confidence building textbook could be to the fearful student. Unable to find a book pitched at the right level, that concentrated on why numerical skills are useful to biologists, he wrote his own. Available as a physical book and an ebook
- Foundation Maths by Anthony Croft; Robert DavisonISBN: 9781292095172Publication Date: 2016-02-05Foundation Maths has been written for students taking higher and further education courses who have not specialised in mathematics on post-16 qualifications and need to use mathematical tools in their courses. It is ideally suited to those studying marketing, business studies, management, science, engineering, social science, geography, combined studies and design. It will be useful for those who lack confidence and who need careful, steady guidance in mathematical methods. For those whose mathematical expertise is already established, the book will be a helpful revision and reference guide. The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning.
