### Nuffield Advanced Chemistry (Third Edition): Mineral Process Chemistry

The Mineral Process Chemistry special study was originally published by the Mineral Industry Manpower and Careers Unit (MIMCU) in 1980 as a supplement to the studies published earlier by the Nuffield Foundation. In the first revision of the course, in 1984, this title was incorporated into the project’s list of...

### Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Book 2

Book Two of Nuffield Advanced Mathematics built on the foundations started in Book One. Like the other books in the series it consisted mainly of activities through which students could develop their understanding of mathematical ideas and results, or could apply their knowledge and understanding to problems of...

### Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Book 3

Book Three of Nuffield Advanced Mathematics contained the units that, with Books One and Two, made up the AS course. These units extended the students’ knowledge of algebra, calculus, exponential functions and handling data. It also introduced vectors.

Unit 11:...

### Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Book 4

Book Four of Nuffield Advanced Mathematics included the first five units of the core A2 part of the advanced level course. The book showed how to find polynomials to fit given data, it gave a number of ways of solving equations by iteration, and it also introduced matrices and ideas of chaos. The first unit in the...

### Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Book 5

Book Five of Nuffield Advanced Mathematics contained the last four units of the core A2 course. The units in this book completed the treatment of calculus and statistics in the core.

**Contents**

Unit 21: More calculus

Unit 22: Plane curves

Unit 23: More differential...

### Mechanics 1

The approach in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics books was one of guided modelling supported by practical work. In each investigation, students were expected to:

*define the problem that you are going to investigate

*set up a mathematical model of the situation

*analyse the situation mathematically...

### Mechanics 2

As with Mechanics 1, the approach in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics book was one of guided modelling supported by practical work with the same expectations that, in each investigation students would:

*define the problem that you are going to investigate

*set up a mathematical model of the situation...

### Statistics

The emphasis in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics option was on non-parametric methods to help students to gain a good understanding of statistical processes. Students required access to a computer with a professional statistics package to gain the full benefit from this option.

### Complex Numbers and Numerical Methods

The two units in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics option were independent of one another, and of unequal in length. ‘Complex numbers’ needed more time than ‘Numerical methods’.

The unit on complex numbers developed the arithmetic and geometry of complex numbers and led up to a section on fractals. The unit...

### Discrete Mathematics

A substantial part of this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics option was about algorithms. Students used calculators, or computers with a structured programming language, to turn algorithms into programs. They were introduced to various aspects of discrete mathematics and, in particular, they were shown how many of...
