SS3 Mathematics Revision: Integration and Evaluation Simple Algebraic Functions

What is Algebraic Function? In mathematics, an algebraic function is a function that can be defined as the root of a polynomial equation. Quite often algebraic functions can be expressed using a finite number of terms, involving only the algebraic operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and raising to a fractional power. Examples of such functions are: Some [...]

Follow These Easy Steps To Solve Simple Algebraic Problems In Mathematics

Algebra is one of the important aspects of  Mathematics. It helps us make connections between different things, to express them using equations, and to see how they will work out. And because Algebra is an integral part of Maths, you need to know how to solve such problems successfully. Consider the diagram shown below, which [...]

How To Solve Algebraic Problems Involving Angles In a Triangle

In a previous article, we looked at how simple algebraic problems can be solved, the case in point being a rectangle. In this example, notice how similar steps have been followed, except that instead of a perimeter of a rectangle, we shall be considering the angles in a triangle. As before, the material has been [...]

Two thirds of parents admit they can’t help their teens with school homework because it’s too hard

Two thirds of parents admit that they cannot help their children with school homework because it is too hard. Maths and science are the subjects parents find the hardest, leaving them embarrassed when they are unable to help, a study of 2,000 mothers and fathers found. Algebra, fractions and trigonometry are the least favourite homework [...]
