This book has been written for students of Mathematics at B2 (upper intermediate) and C1 (advanced) level of English, who would like to improve and develop their reading, listening and speaking skills in the field of mathematical science. Students of other sciences might also find it useful in expanding their technical language.
The book presents a number of texts and some recordings illustrating the problems associated with mathematics. The materials come from British and American sources therefore, the original spelling of words has been kept. It contains twenty nine units subdivided into parts, which include a variety of activities aimed at technical vocabulary practice and developing communicative skills. Each unit can be treated as a whole or analysed selectively depending on the students’ needs and purposes.
The answer key is included at the back of the book, thus it can be used as a self-study material.
English-Polish glossary will help students understand various mathematical concepts and expand their vocabulary resources.
The author’s aim is to encourage students not only to learn new technical vocabulary but also to apply mathematical terminology in spoken language.
