Book Description

This book is intended to help candidates prepare for entrance examinations in mathematics and scientific subjects, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Paper). STEP is an examination used by Cambridge colleges as the basis for conditional offers. They are also used by Warwick University, and many other mathematics departments recommend that their applicants practice on the past papers even if they do not take the examination.

Advanced Problems in Mathematics is recommended as preparation for any undergraduate mathematics course, even for students who do not plan to take the Sixth Term Examination Paper. The questions analysed in this book are all based on recent STEP questions selected to address the syllabus for Papers I and II, which is the A-level core (i.e. C1 to C4) with a few additions.

Each question is followed by a comment and a full solution. The comments direct the reader's attention to key points and put the question in its true mathematical context. The solutions point students to the methodology required to address advanced mathematical problems critically and independently.

This book is a must read for any student wishing to apply to scientific subjects at university level and for anybody interested in advanced mathematics.

  • Math for Trades: Volume 1 (Chad Flinn, et al.)

    This volume represents the building blocks for math training. The goal of this volume is to get students prepared for the more advanced topics that they will encounter during their trades math education.

  • Math for Trades: Volume 2 (Chad Flinn, et al.)

    This volume continues where the Volume 1 left off. Volume 2 increases the challenge with topics such as converting units and working with equations, perimeter, area, and volume. Once again the material is presented from a trades perspective.

  • Elementary Mathematics (William Chen, et al)

    The overall emphasis of this book is on examples, of which there are many. The material has been organized in such a way to create a single volume suitable for preparing the student for university mathematics.

  • High School Mathematics Extensions (Zhuo Jia Dai, et al)

    This online textbook is aimed at, but not limited to, 14 to 18 year olds who are interested in mathematics in general. Several interesting topics not covered in the standard high school curriculum are introduced in this text.

  • The Essence of Mathematics Through Elementary Problems

    This book consists of a sequence of 270 problems of increasing sophistication (Mental Skills; Arithmetic; Word Problems; Algebra; Geometry; Infinity) – with commentary and full solutions. The reader is assumed to have a reasonable grasp of school mathematics.
