My Basic Maths resources

At one stage of my life in the dim and distance past I taught maths at a local college to adults; who struggled with understanding basic maths concepts, in their earlier education (myself included).

So I have included here some of the material I generated whilst teaching that might prove helpful to anyone struggling with some of the basics, or anyone working with others and in need of some reference material to work from. I would of course urge anyone not to soley use my material here but to find other material that would complement my material as we all have different learning styles.
I suggest therefore that you take a peek at the useful links section, towards the bottom of this page.
Being almost human it is possible that some errors may have crept into my work, if so I applogise in advance and would ask you let me know if you come accross any of errors or things that don't make sense. You can contact me at: overseer@simplyinformed.uk
More material will be added over the coming weeks. Please feel free to copy and distrubute as required.
