Introductory Maths Resources for
Probabilistic Modelling and Reasoning
Topics
The topics that you will need to have some understanding of are
 Vectors and matrices
 Differential calculus, up to partial differentiation
 Basic probability (discrete and continuous probability distributions)
Books
The material mentioned above is covered in many mathematics texts.
I mention some common Engineering Maths texts below which have
appropriate coverage, but there are many, many more
 Engineering Mathematics: Programmes and Problems.
K. A. Stroud, Macmillan, 4th edition, 1995. Available in Main library
(short loan), Robertson and JCM libraries.
 Mathematics for Engineers: A Modern Interactive Approach.
A. Croft and R. Davison, Addison Wesley, 1999.
Webbased resources
Almost all of what I know about webbased mathematics resources is
derived from the
CTI Mathematics
Resources page.
I have focussed on webbased resources.

Engineering Presessional Mathematics Refresher Programme from Loughborough University. Has refresher material on arithmetic and algebra,
trigonometry, common engineering functions, differentiation
integration. Has exercises.

The Geomaths
MathHelp material. A series of "notebooks". 1st level modules include
differentiation and vectors. Second level modules include partial
differentiation, matrices and probability. Some exercises (with answers),
although the ExitQuizes are not enabled.

Interactive Exercises on Matrix Algebra. Only as far as
Basic Computing with Vectors and Matrices.
 MATHabundance A number
of tutorials on mathematical topics (e.g vectors, matrices,
the derivative), worked problems and links to other tutorials
Please let me know of any
resources (printed or webbased) that you find helpful that are not mentioned
above.
