Just the Maths (A.J.Hobson)

"Just the Maths" authored by the late Tony Hobson, former Senior
Lecturer in Mathematics of the School of Mathematical and
Information Sciences at Coventry University, is a collection of separate mathematics units, in chronological
topic-order, intended for foundation level and first year
degree level in higher education where mathematics is a service discipline e.g. engineering.

Maths EG Teacher Interface

The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.
