Maths help

Maths Help provides students and enquirers with free access to the Open University's high quality learning resources related to everyday mathematics.

Succeed with maths – Part 1

If you feel that maths is a mystery that you want to unravel then this free course is for you. The course will guide you through how numbers are put together, give you confidence with using percentages, fractions and negative numbers and provide you with problem-solving skills for your everyday life and the wider world.

Succeed with maths – Part 2

Following on from Succeed with maths - Part 1, this free badged course will continue to develop your mathematical knowledge and skills using everyday examples. The course will guide you through measurement, scientific notation (based on powers of 10) and roots of numbers, shapes and how to calculate their properties before finally turning to how to construct and read from tables, charts and graphs. It provides a solid foundation for you to continue with studies in any subject which requires some degree of mathematical knowledge.

Basic science: understanding numbers

This practical, hands-on free course will help you to start thinking like a scientist, by using numbers to describe and understand the natural world. It might be the size of the Greenland ice sheet, the number of molecules in a raindrop, or the latest set of mind-boggling numbers about climate change presented in the media.

Using a scientific calculator

Do you have a Casio fx-83 ES scientific calculator (or a compatible model) and want to learn how to use it? This free course, Using a scientific calculator, will help you to understand how to use the different facilities and functions and discover what a powerful tool this calculator can be!

Numbers: Getting to grips with division

Do you want to improve your ability to divide one number into another, especially if decimals are involved, without having to rely on a calculator? This free course, Numbers: Getting to grips with division, will help you understand division and give you some practice in doing it.

Maths for science and technology

You're about to start a course in science and technology and you're wondering whether your level of maths is going to be enough to get you through. This free course, Maths for science and technology, will show you how to reflect on what you know, identify which skills you might need for your course, and help you to learn those skills using worked examples and activities.

Language, notation and formulas

Communication is as vital in mathematics as in any language. This free course, Language, notation and formulas, will help you to express yourself clearly when writing and speaking about mathematics. You will also learn how to answer questions in the manner that is expected by the examiner.

Ratio, proportion and percentages

From politics to cookery, ratios, proportions and percentages are part of everyday life. This free course is designed to help you become more familiar with how figures can be manipulated, then you can check whether that discount really is as big as they claim!

Squares, roots and powers

From paving your patio to measuring the ingredients for your latest recipe, squares, roots and powers really are part of everyday life. This free course reviews the basics of all three and also describes scientific notation, which is a convenient way of writing or displaying large numbers.

Geometry

Geometry is concerned with the various aspects of size, shape and space. In this free course you will explore the concepts of angles, shapes, symmetry, area and volume through interactive activities.
