It is now possible to enter a chemistry degree course at many UK
universities without any formal maths training beyond age 16.
Addressing this deficiency requires students to take additional
mathematics training when entering university, yet the relevance of
maths to chemistry is often poorly appreciated by chemistry
students. In addition, many service courses are either too
abstract, or aimed at physicists and engineers, for students of
chemistry, who are not inclined to study mathematical techniques
per se and do not make the connection between the maths they
are taught and the chemistry they want to study.

Based on the successful at a Glance approach, with
integrated double page presentations explaining the mathematics
required by undergraduate students of chemistry, set in context by
detailed chemical examples, this book will be indispensable to all
students of chemistry. By bringing the material together in this
way the student is shown how to apply the maths and how it relates
to familiar concepts in chemistry. By including problems (with
answers) on each presentation, the student is encouraged to
practice both the mathematical manipulations and the application to
problems in chemistry. More detailed chemical problems at the end
of each topic illustrate the range of chemistry to which the maths
is relevant and help the student acquire sufficient confidence to
apply it when necessary.
