The material will cover topics and content which could be presented anywhere from GCSE level up to and including mathematics transition into 1st year University engineering. The difference between these resources and other resources available on the internet is the focus on understanding how the mathematics works using simple human intuition; the hope is that this will make it more accessible to students struggling to 'memorise' techniques while not understanding why they work.

These videos give an introduction to exponential and logarithm functions and their key attributes. It is assumed that students have been introduced to these functions before, albeit briefly, and thus the focus is more on identifying and understanding the key properties that will be used in engineering problem solving.

The videos do spend a little time demonstrating that some key results are true, but students could skip those parts and concentrate on the key results if they want too.
