Mathematics and Statistics for Science

Mathematics and statistics are the bedrock of modern science. No matter which branch of science you plan to work in, you simply cannot avoid quantitative approaches. And while you won't always need to know a great deal of theory, you will need to know how to apply mathematical and statistical methods in realistic scenarios. That is precisely what this book teaches. It covers the mathematical and statistical topics that are ubiquitous in early undergraduate courses, but does so in a way that is directly linked to science.
