    Out of the subjects I have opted to do for A level (bio, Chem, Phys, Maths) maths is the one I find hardest. During the 2 1/2 months I have of holiday I was thinking of getting a head start on the course so I want to know if anyone can recomend any books that cover the OCR maths A level course?

    Well, what does "A level" math cover? Algebra, Calculus, etc.

    The use of mathematics is many and varied.

    Maybe you should think about those who actually want you the most for your mathematical skills (depending on how good you want to be).

    By (indirect) experience, the BIG players, and I mean "big", are the reinsurance companies, insurance companies that insure insrance companies. They need mathematicians like they need doctors. They settle the MAJOR CATASTROPHES that hit society, civilization.

    In mathematics, it's just an axe. The joy is applying it to something you actually like.

    If I were to suggest a book, something "inspirational" perhaps.

    I would also suggest that careers in physics are far more limited than mathematics..........physics basically has limited itself to the "astro" and "nuclear", both fronts of which are highly contested for next to nothing when it comes to social usefuleness.
    Does a theory of everything therefore need to be purely theoretical and only account for the known laws and forces in handling the improbability of fortune telling?

    the www feature below can explain it better.
