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.

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.

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.

Completing the square - an Animation
This mathtutor animation shows how the quadratic equation for a parabola may be transformed by completing the square. This resource is released under a Creative Commons license Attribution-Non-Commercial-No Derivative Works and the copyright is held by Skillbank Solutions Ltd.
Completing the Square - by Inspection
In this unit we consider how quadratic expressions can be written in an equivalent form using the technique known as completing the square. This technique has applications in a number of areas, but we will see an example of its use in solving a quadratic equation. (Mathtutor Video Tutorial) This resource is released under a Creative Commons license Attribution-Non-Commercial-No Derivative Works and the copyright is held by Skillbank Solutions Ltd.
Completing the Square - maxima & maxima
Completing the square is an algebraic technique which has several applications. These include the solution of quadratic equations. In this unit we use it to find the maximum or minimum values of quadratic functions. (Mathtutor Video Tutorial) This resource is released under a Creative Commons license Attribution-Non-Commercial-No Derivative Works and the copyright is held by Skillbank Solutions Ltd.
Expanding & Removing Brackets
In this unit we see how to expand an expression containing brackets. By this we mean to rewrite the expression in an equivalent form without any brackets in. Fluency with this sort of algebraic manipulation is an essential skill which is vital for further study.

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.

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.

Partial Fractions
After viewing this tutorial, you should be able to explain the meaning of the terms 'proper fraction' and 'improper fraction', and express an algebraic fraction as the sum of its partial fractions. (Mathtutor Video Tutorial) algebraic fraction as the sum of its partial fractions.

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.

Polynomial Division
In order to simplify certain sorts of algebraic fraction we need a process known as polynomial division. This unit describes this process.

Powers
A knowledge of powers, or indices as they are often called, is essential for an understanding of most algebraic processes. In this section you will learn about powers and rules for manipulating them through a number of worked examples.

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.
