Review of MyMathLab: "Numeracy is an area of concern in all professional preparation whether in healthcare or not. MyMathlab would appear to offer a valuable resource that both academics and their students could make use of in support of their studies. I think the gradebook function in Mymathlab could be very helpful in identifying numeracy issues that not only individuals but groups of students may be struggling with and aid the directing of lecturer and student efforts where the learning is most needed.
MyMathlab could also be a very powerful resource in setting challenges and supporting the provision of rapid feedback on progression learning (or performance) which students find very helpful in supporting their learning." - Charlie McGory, Deputy Head of School of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare, Thames Valley University Reviews of the textbook: 'Clear, concise and relevant information given in a very user friendly way, well contextualised to nursing and this will make the concepts "real" to students.' - Maggie Davidson, University of Hertfordshire 'It is much more than a numeracy book, great examples of theory in practice.' - James Richardson, Curriculum Support Manager, Directorate of Nursing, University of Liverpool "Shihab draws on her 25 years of teaching experience to provide a text devoted specifically to competency in the often-dreaded area of maths for student nurses." - THES, Feb 2010 "Very useful tool to assist students with numeracy skills" - Paul McCreary, NHS Foundation Trust About the author Pearl Shihab has wide experience of nursing and midwifery in both hospital and community settings.
She has spent the last eleven years teaching biosciences on healthcare programmes and supporting students lacking in maths skills.
