Why Do We Teach Algebra?
Until recent history, mathematics had not been taught to the general population. Only those who were rich, powerful, and/or politically connected were given the opportunity to study math beyond basic counting operations. Many of my junior high students are excited about...

Introduction
This scheme of work is based upon a five term model over two years for both Foundation and Higher tier students.
It can be used directly as a scheme of work for the GCSE Mathematics B specification.
The scheme of work is structured so each topic contains:

function are varied. We also saw that varying the righthandside value for a particular constraint alters the optimal value of the objective function in a way that allows us to impute a per-unit value, or shadow price, to that constraint. These shadow prices and the shadow prices on the implicit nonnegativity...

diversiﬁcation, the attractiveness of a particular asset when held in a portfolio

Algebra is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. As such, it includes everything from elementary equation solving to the study of abstractions such as groups, rings, and fields. The more basic parts of algebra are called elementary algebra, the more abstract...
