Resource type Handling your emotions
Studying mathematics as an adult can be a daunting (or even terrifying!) task. Not only do you need to make progress in your studies, you also may need to handle your negative emotions towards the subject as they can hinder you from achieving your full potential. The purpose of this leaflet is to give you some ideas and techniques that might help you to handle your emotions better when learning and doing mathematics.
Resource type Mathematical Symbols and Abbreviations
This leaflet provides information on symbols and notation commonly used in mathematics. It shows the meaning of a symbol and, where necessary, an example and an indication of how the symbol would be said. For further information from mathcentre resources, a search phrase is given. This Quick Reference leaflet is contributed to the mathcentre Community Project by Janette Matthews and reviewed by Tony Croft, University of Loughborough.
