Resource <div><p>A scientific calculator. We recommend any Casio scientific calculator with 'natural display', as these enable you to key in calculations in the same order as they usually appear in written text, and have a two-line display so that you can see both your calculation and the answer. Some instructions for using the Casio fx-83ES, and compatible models, are provided in the study materials. Any other scientific calculator is also acceptable provided that you know how to use it before the module starts, and you have access to the appropriate calculator manual (these are often available to download from the manufacturer's website). Please note that you do not need to have a graphics or programmable calculator to study this module.</p><p>(If you have studied Science, technology and maths Access module (Y033), you can use the calculator from that module providing you have access to the manual.)</p><p>A computing device with a browser and broadband internet access is required for this module.

title Discovering mathematics
description <div><p>This key introductory OU level 1 module provides a gentle start to the study of mathematics. It will help you to integrate mathematical ideas into your everyday thinking and build your confidence in using and learning mathematics. You'll cover statistical, graphical, algebraic, trigonometric and numerical concepts and techniques, and be introduced to mathematical modelling. Formal calculus is not included and you are not expected to have any previous knowledge of algebra. The skills introduced will be needed if you plan to study more mathematics modules, such as<em>Essential mathematics 1</em>(MST124), and are also required in other areas, such as computing, economics, science, technology, social science, humanities, business and education.</p></div>
