Maths at Sea is an e-learning course in Maths for nautical students and those about to begin a course at nautical college.
The programme has been written by professionals in nautical education and the entire programme is marine themed - it uses relevant, nautically-flavoured examples and language.
As well as functional maths, it also covers elementary aspects of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry: essential skill sets at nautical college, but often no longer covered as part of the school curriculum.
The award-winning course intuitively leads students to apply basic yet key maths concepts without them realising they are doing so and has been commended as 'making a significant contribution to the recruitment, training, retention and advancement of the industry's most valuable asset - its people'.
It's an ideal prep for nautical college or can be used as a revision aid for students whose studies have started.
Maths@Sea has three parts: arithmetic, space and volume, and algebra. There is a test for each part, which will help you see how you're getting on. The tests are multiple choice, and cover the topics you've just been studying.
