Egyptian mathematics

Description

The Egyptians are known for being ahead of their time in comparison to some civilisations that came after them. This unit looks at how the Egyptians solved mathematical problems in everyday life and the technology they used. An understanding of this area has only been possible following the translation of the Rosetta Stone.

Babylonian mathematics

Description

This unit looks at Babylonian mathematics. You will learn how a series of discoveries have enabled historians to decipher stone tablets and study the various techniques the Babylonians used for problem-solving and teaching. The Babylonian problem-solving skills have been described as remarkable and scribes of the time received a trainng far in advance of anything available in medieval Christian Europe 3000 years later.

Pain and Aspirin Pain and Aspirin

Description

What causes pain and how do we stop it? This free course, Pain and Aspirin, looks at how the human body responds to the release of certain chemicals and as a result feels pain. Pain can be reduced by inhibiting the formation of such chemicals and you will learn how the molecular structure of aspirin has been formulated to help in this process.

John Napier

Description

Scotsman John Napier is best known to for his treatise on Protestant religion. However, it was his interest in a completely different subject that radically altered the course of mathematics. After forty years of dabbling in maths, he revealed his table of logarithms in the early 17th century.

OeRBITAL Project (Open educational Resources for Biologists Involved in Teaching And Learning)

Description

OeRBITAL is a discovery project co-ordinated by the UK Centre for Bioscience, working with a number of Discipline Consultants tasked to explore OER repositories to discover the most suitable resources for the attention of their discipline communities. Around 300 Open Educational Resources in areas relating to Bioscience disciplines have been identified by our experts, and evaluated for inclusion in a number of discipline-specific curated collections, as a means of highlighting these key resources for the benefit of the wider Bioscience academic community.

Modelling displacements and velocities

Description

In this unit you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section 2, in which you will also work with bearings.

First-order differential equations

Description

This unit introduces the topic of differential equations. The subject is developed without assuming that you have come across it before, but it is taken for granted that you have a basic grounding in calculus. In particular, you will need to have a good grasp of the basic rules for differentiation and integration.
