Whether multiplying ingredients to make a party-sized batch of treats, or calculating compound interest, you will most likely encounter some sort of math challenge in life that takes a bit more than in-your-head calculation to solve. We often do not realize how much math knowledge we have forgotten until faced with a special project or aptitude test. If you find the once-memorized equations from high school math are starting to get a bit fuzzy, it may be time for a quick refresher to sharpen those skills.
The Applied Mathematics LibGuide provides plenty of resources to help you learn or relearn concepts from basic arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and statistics. You can work through interactive web tutorials via the links on the “Tutorials” tab to get some hands-on practice with many specific math skills. If you are just looking for an explanation of a more general math topic, check out our links in the “Videos from Databases” tab. This LibGuide also contains lists of our books, ebooks, and DVDs about math topics from the practical to the conceptual. To keep your learning experience interesting, try out some of the offerings on the “Educational Games” tab. Here you will find mobile apps and browser games sure to engage even the most math-phobic learner.
You can find the Applied Mathematics LibGuide via the Bellevue University Library website. On our home page at library.bellevue.edu, look under the “Find” drop-down menu for the “Subject, Course, and Research Guides” link. This link will take you to a list of all the library’s LibGuides.
