The Mathematics Curriculum: Algebra
This Mathematics Curriculum book, first published in 1978, begins by giving a short account of what 'algebra' means, to inform those readers whose mathematical training did not take in the most recently included topics of school syllabuses, and to refresh the memories of those who were exposed to these ideas. Objectives in the teaching of algebra and mathematical aspects of algebra in the school setting are discussed. Topics covered include functions and mappings, solving equations, matrices and simultaneous equations, relations and inequalities, and algebraic structure. The book is a guide to the historical context of algebra teaching at the time and reviews some of the textbooks available. Many of the resources will be out of date but the principles are still relevant today.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
