Elf Eldridge is:
COO, Chiasma WGTN
2013 President, WGTN Branch of the Royal Society
Physics PhD Student MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
He is also a poor maths student. However that means that the bits that he does understand, he understands and can explain really simply so that anyone [really, anyone!] can understand it.
Also, unlike your high school maths teacher he's interested in finding the quick ways that make maths work for individuals rather than focussing relentlessly on the underlying concepts.
Learn what you need when you need it as he says!
what to bring
a calculator of some description - on your phone or computer is fine, or an actual calculator if you prefer.
