Maths @ Work videos

12th January 2001 at 00:00
Students who complain that mathematics makes no sense in the real world should be introduced to Maths @ Work, a series of attractive videos showing how young people in a variety of jobs need to use what they have learned in the classroom. A hairdresser needs to calculate the ratio of peroxide to colour; a health instructor has to convert miles to kilometres and interpret graphs; and an apprentice instrument technician uses lnear equations and binary numbers.
