If you did not study science subjects at sixth form or senior school, you may be looking for ways to improve your skills in mathematics. One approach to follow is the syllabus provided by Cambridge Pre-University Mathematics.

To understand much about modern science requires a reasonable level of mathematics. Without some appreciation of the mathematics, the explanations are incomprehensible. The difficulty for many of us is that we dropped sciences and mathematics because they were too hard to understand at the speed required to complete a curriculum. I donâ€™t doubt that, given enough time and good materials, an educated person could eventually understand enough. But if that time were more time than required to complete a curriculum, then it is probably a non-starter.
