Learn maths on your Mac: Apple learning resources
Apple has created a range of resources, and services, designed to help students learn all subjects (and math is no exception).
Apple's iBooks Store is a great resource for maths books, and many of them are free. Open iBooks on your Mac and click iBooks Store. Search for math and you'll find a vast collection of books to read. Many are free and include interactive iBooks features. Check out GCSE Maths: Interactive revision guide for algebra and Hands on Precalculus.
Learn maths on your Mac: iTunes U
Apple's iTunes U hasn't got the high profile it used to enjoy, but it's still a great resource of learning materials and videos. Click on on the Media Kind menu in the top-left of iTunes and choose Edit Menu. Place a tick next to iTunes U so you can select it.
