More About the Author

Colin Beveridge (1977-) is a maths confidence coach for Flying Colours Maths and co-author of the Little Algebra Book.

He holds a PhD in Mathematics from the University of St Andrews and worked for several years on NASA's Living With A Star project at Montana State University, where he came up with an equation which is named after him. It's used to help save the world from being destroyed by solar flares. So far so good.

He became tired of the glamour of academia and returned to the UK to concentrate on helping students come to terms with maths and show that not all mathematicians are boring nerds; some are exciting, relatively well-adjusted nerds.

Colin lives in Dorset with an espresso pot, several guitars and nothing to prove.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little guide for A-level and beyond 17 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been teaching an undergraduate course involving some A-level standard core mathematics. This book has been a great refresher for me, and has been really helpful to my students as well. Colin has a friendly conversational writing style that takes away any "fear" about maths, and breaks each topic down into easily coped-with chunks. I would recommend this to anyone trying to bridge the gap between GCSE and A-level, and those of us returning to the topics some time (15 years in my case) after first studying the subject. Undergraduates will find it incredibly useful too.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a phenomoenal Revision guide 12 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a revision/help guide for pupils studying Edexcel A Level Maths C1. It is written in a way which takes students logically through the sticking points of C1 and gives plenty of help on the understanding of the topic, and plenty of little tricks and mnemonics to help them remember stuff in the exam. The book explains things brilliantly, and in a way that is humorous and engaging. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud at a revision guide before!

My only slight criticisms of the book are that on a few occasions, i.e. transforming graphs and dividing fractions, the help is constrained to the “how” of it, with not the why. And that Colin dismisses completing the square as pointless, but I feel that it is great for explaining the quadratic formula, is useful for seeing if a graph has real solutions and has its uses for higher level polynomials for those who go past A Level.

Colin and I differ on our opinions on the best way to complete the square, but his explanation of the equating co-efficients method is superb.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with any of the topics involved in C1 then I would certainly advise buying a copy for your kindle. It is far better than any of the other C1 revision guides I have come across, and would be worth the money for the jokes, or the story of “bad guy x”, alone!

I am finding this book very helpful indeed. The author explains difficult things very clearly in a way other maths books do not. I highly recommend it as a supplementary to any A level maths course.
