Critical Path Analysis

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project is the first of two units on Critical Path Analysis (CPA). The broad objective of this unit is for students to become familiar with the diagrammatic conventions and with some of the terminology used in CPA.

The first half of the unit is devoted to exposition...

Flowcharts and Algorithms

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project on flowcharts and Algorithms employs, three basic conventions:
(i) the use of a flowchart and the appropriate symbols
(ii) the use of computer statements, such as 'c = c + I1
(iii) the use of the inequality signs >, <, ≤ and ≥
Three very...

Continuing Mathematics Project: Indices and Standard Form

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project has been planned to help students remember and understand what indices indicate and the rules they obey. As with all the units in this collection the text is designed to test as it teaches and is in sections.

The content of the booklet starts with a...

Continuing Mathematics Project: Inequalities

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project has been planned to help students learn how to handle inequalities, and how to represent them graphically. Students should be familiar with manipulating positive and negative numbers, representing equations of the form y + 3x = 6 as a graph and finding the solution...

Linear Programming

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project is about linear programming - a procedure which is used widely in industry to solve management problems. The work here is an introduction to the subject.

There are no really new mathematical techniques in the unit. It is rather an amalgamation of things...

Mathematics in Geography 4: The Gravity Model

For students to benefit from this Mathematics in Geography 4 unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project they should be familiar with simple ratios and square roots, and with algebraic symbolism and quadratic equations. A fair amount of arithmetic is involved in the unit.

The objectives of...

Electrons and Atoms

This book was one in the Longman Physics Topics series. It was written to provide background material for the work on electrons and atoms in the fifth year of the Nuffield Physics course. The book aimed to bring together topics discussed earlier in...

Positive and Negative Numbers

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project assumes that students have met and used directed numbers, but that their use has become rusty. The unit briefly justifies the rules by which the four operations (+, -, x and ÷) can be accurately carried out. In this sense the unit could be said to form an...

Probability

This resource from the Continuing Mathematics Project has three units covering probability.

Introducing Probability is the first unit and its objectives are that students will learn that a probability can be from intuitive considerations or actual experimental results; the...

The Theory of Logarithms: Part One

These two units from the Continuing Mathematics Project assumes that the word 'logarithm' will be familiar to students using it, and that they will have used tables of logarithms to reduce the labour of working out expressions by arithmetic methods.

The units assume that students are interested in knowing...
