Resource type Linear Equations in One Variable Part 1
IPOD VIDEO: In this unit we give examples of simple linear equations and show you how these can be solved. In any equation there is an unknown quantity, x say, that we are trying to find. In a linear equation this unknown quantity will appear only as a multiple of x, and not as a function of x such as x squared, x cubed, sin x and so on. Linear equations occur so frequently in the solution of other problems that a thorough understanding of them is essential.

Resource type Logarithms 1
Logarithms appear in all sorts of calculations in engineering and science, business and economics. Before the days of calculators they were used to assist in the process of multiplication by replacing the operation of multiplication by addition. Similarly, they enabled the operation of division to be replaced by subtraction. They remain important in other ways, one of which is that they provide the underlying theory of the logarithm function. This has applications in many fields, for example, the decibel scale in acoustics.

Resource type Pascal's Triangle & the Binomial Theorem 1
A binomial expression is the sum or difference of two terms. For example, x+1 and 3x+2y are both binomial expressions. If we want to raise a binomial expression to a power higher than 2 it is very cumbersome to do this by repeatedly multiplying x+1 or 3x+2y by itself. In this tutorial you will learn how Pascal's triangle can be used to obtain the required result quickly.

A binomial expression is the sum or difference of two terms. For example, x+1 and 3x+2y are both binomial expressions. If we want to raise a binomial expression to a power higher than 2 it is very cumbersome to do this by repeatedly multiplying x+1 or 3x+2y by itself. In this tutorial you will learn how Pascal's triangle can be used to obtain the required result quickly.

Resource type Factorising Quadratic Equations
An essential skill in many applications is the ability to factorise quadratic expressions. In this unit you will see that this can be thought of as reversing the process used to 'remove' or 'multiply-out' brackets from an expression.

Resource type Logarithms
Logarithms appear in all sorts of calculations in engineering and science, business and economics. Before the days of calculators they were used to assist in the process of multiplication by replacing the operation of multiplication by addition. Similarly, they enabled the operation of division to be replaced by subtraction. They remain important in other ways, one of which is that they provide the underlying theory of the logarithm function. This has applications in many fields, for example, the decibel scale in acoustics.

Resource type Pascal's triangle and the binomial expansion
A binomial expression is the sum or difference of two terms. For example, x+1 and 3x+2y are both binomial expressions. If we want to raise a binomial expression to a power higher than 2 it is very cumbersome to do this by repeatedly multiplying x+1 or 3x+2y by itself. In this tutorial you will learn how Pascal's triangle can be used to obtain the required result quickly.

Resource type Simple Linear Equations
In this unit we give examples of simple linear equations and show you how these can be solved. In any equation there is an unknown quantity, x say, that we are trying to find. In a linear equation this unknown quantity will appear only as a multiple of x, and not as a function of x such as x2, x3, sin x and so on. Linear equations occur so frequently in the solution of other problems that a thorough understanding of them is essential.
