This facility is situated in room 30BC03 (level 3).  It is based on a self-help package called HELM (Help Engineers Learn Mathematics) developed at Loughborough University.  It consists of workbooks that cover virtually all the Mathematics you will cover in levels 1 and 2 of your degree in engineering. It is available for the use of any students in FEPS.

 

MathCal, developed at Surrey, is also available on the desktop
