Welcome to the

'Learning to handle Data' homepage

The material on these pages has been designed to help you to understand the broad philosophies that scientists (of all disciplines) employ to gather, sort, analyse and make deductions from the large amounts of numerical data that they collect during the course of their researches.

Your ability to handle data effectively will be one of the most useful 'tools' you will acquire during your undergraduate course.

There are many examples of the various techniques in action and also interactive exercises to help you to test your own progress and understanding.
