Syllabus

This practical, hands-on course will help you to start thinking like a scientist, by using numbers to describe and understand the natural world. It might be the size of the Greenland ice sheet, the number of molecules in a raindrop, or the latest set of mind-boggling numbers about climate change presented in the media. No longer will you be put off by averages or percentages, and you’ll even learn to love negative numbers. You will understand and manage numbers like a scientist. The course will introduce all the main skills you’ll need to understand and communicate scientific numbers, relate them to the real world, and share your discoveries with other learners. You may also be interested in joining Basic Science: Understanding Experiments. All Open University science courses presented on FutureLearn are produced with the kind support of Dangoor Education.
