    Product Code: BWMDP

    "The writer William Morris said that you should `have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful', and I think the same is true of education - that its purpose is to fill our heads with things we find useful, or beautiful, or hopefully both." For Joe Norman, education is what you still remember when you have forgotten everything else. What ideas have stayed with you from the classroom? How do you write an essay? How do you read a poem? Drawing on fifteen years of tutoring, Joe shares with his readers his top seven essential and imaginative lessons, including: How to Write a Story, How to Avoid Common Mistakes, and, most importantly, how to think. Stripping away grades, praise, university places or examiners, this book celebrates the love of learning things for their own sake.

  • Math for Scientists

    Natasha Maurits

    Product Code: BNWFT
    Paperback
    This book reviews math topics relevant to non-mathematics students and scientists, but which they may not have seen or studied for a while. These math issues can range from reading mathematical symbols, to using complex numbers, dealing with equations involved in calculating medication equivalents, the General Linear Model (GLM) used in e.g. neuroimaging analysis, finding the minimum of a function, independent component analysis, or filtering approaches. Almost every student or scientist, will at some point run into mathematical formulas or ideas in scientific papers that may be hard to understand, given that formal math education may be some years ago. In this book we will explain the theory behind many of these mathematical ideas and expressions and provide readers with the tools to better understand them. We will revisit high school mathematics and extend and relate this to the mathematics you need to understand the math you may encounter in the course of your research. This book will help you understand the math and formulas in the scientific papers you read. To achieve this goal, each chapter mixes theory with practical pen-and-paper exercises such that you (re)gain experience with solving math problems yourself. Mnemonics will be taught whenever possible. To clarify the math and help readers apply it, each chapter provides real-world and scientific examples.
