The Theory of Logarithms: Part Two

This is the second part of the unit on The Theory of Logarithms from the Continuing Mathematics Project. It assumes that the user has completed the first part of the unit.

The objectives of the unit are to enable students to:
(i) acquire the concept of a logarithm as an extension of the concepts of a '...

The Trigonometry of the Right Angled Triangle

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project is concerned with the calculation of the sides and angles of triangles and how this is used by the surveyor, the navigator, and the cartographer. The development of the television, the light and the road have all relied on trigonometry.

The objectives of the...

Transformation of Formulae

Transformation of Formulae from the Continuing Mathematics Project builds on the work covered in the unit entitled Working with Ratios.

The objectives of this unit are to enable students to acquire the skills necessary to transform formulae which involve algebraical fractions, brackets, and roots, as well as...

Using Logarithms to Determine Relationships

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project goes into detail on how logarithms can be used to determine the laws which connect two variables on which experimental data has been collected. The unit follows naturally from the unit entitled The Theory of Logarithms.

The objectives of the unit are that...

Working with Ratios

This unit from the Continuing Mathematics Project is designed to enable students to cope confidently with expressions of the type A/B= C/D, where A, B, C and D, may be integers or algebraic products like mv2 or functions like log x, or sin y.

So equipped, students will be...

Motivating A-Level Mathematics

Produced by the Spode Group, this resource illustrates many applications of topics in A-level mathematics. The book is divided into four chapters. Each chapter contains a number of case studies. Each case study is divided into an introductory problem statement, solution and further exercises.

Solving Real Problems with Mathematics Volume 2

Volume two of two publications produced by the Spode Group with the aim of providing a useful set of examples that are convincing applications of mathematics and applications which can be taught in schools.

This volume contains case studies with three distinct components: problem statement, teaching notes...

Alternatives for Science Education

Alternatives for Science Education was produced and published by the Association for Science Education (ASE) in 1979. Its sub-title, A Consultative Document, indicates its aim and status. In addition to being a document of considerable historical interest, it contains arguments of continued relevance.

The...

Exercises in Modern Mathematics

This resource consists of ten topics, each section containing a brief explanation, examples and exercises.

Sets begins with a definition of a set and continues with the elements of a set, set notation, subsets, intersection and union of sets, Venn diagrams, the laws of sets and concludes...

Cytology, genetics and evolution

Cytology, Genetics and Evolution is one of the titles in the series of ASE Lab Books that were published in the early 1970s for the Association for Science Education by John Murray. Each title covered one or two topics and brought together the best of the teaching notes and experimental ideas from members of the...
