Algebra

Mathematical language
This video provides useful background material on the different mathematical symbols used in mathematical work. It also describes conventions used by mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.Length: 21 minutes 
Powers or Indices
Powers (also called exponents or indices) are a short way of writing multiplication of the same factor. A knowledge of powers, is essential for an understanding of most algebraic processes. In this section you will learn about powers and rules for manipulating them through a number of worked examples.Length: 32 minutes 
Logarithms
Before calculators logarithms were used to assist in multiplication and division. They still appear in a number of calculations in engineering, science, business and economics. This video looks at what a logarithm is, why use it and examples on how to use them.Length: 32 minutes 
Substitution & Formulae
In mathematics, engineering and science, formulae are used to relate physical quantities to each other. They provide rules so that if we know the values of certain quantities, the values of others can be calculated. This video looks at several formulae and how they are used.Length: 20 minutes 
Expanding and Removing Brackets
Expanding brackets means being able to rewrite the expression in an equivalent form without any brackets. This video investigates the mathematics behind expanding and removing brackets and then shows examples using simple expressions through to nesting brackets (brackets inside other brackets).Length: 39 minutes 
Pascal's triangle and Binomial Expansion
A binomial expression is the sum or difference of two terms. For example, x+1 and 3x+2y are both binomial expressions. If we want to raise a binomial expression to a power higher than 2 it is very cumbersome to do this by repeatedly multiplying x+1 or 3x+2y by itself. In this video you will learn how Pascal's triangle can be used to obtain the required result quickly.Length: 53 minutes 
Factorising Quadratic Equations
Factorising can be thought of as reversing the process used to 'remove' brackets from an expression. This video looks at factorising by inspection and then other methods of factorising used for example when the coefficient of x2 is not 1 or when there is no constant term.Length: 42 minutes 
Transposition or Rearranging Formulae
It is often useful to rearrange, or transpose, a formula in order to write it in a different, but equivalent form. This video explains what it means to "transpose", the procedure for doing this through simple examples and then shows some more complex examples.Length: 39 minutes 
Simple Linear Equations
This video gives examples of simple linear equations and shows how the unknown quantity can be found. This involves collecting terms, removing brackets, and solving linear equations with fractions.Length: 33 minutes 
Completing the Square  By Inspection
Quadratic expressions can be written in an equivalent form using the technique known as completing the square. This video explains the basic ideas behind completing the square and how to use the method to solve quadratic equations.Length: 18 minutes 
Completing the Square  Maxima & Maxima
This video shows how to find the maximum or minimum values of quadratic functions by using the 'completing the square' technique.Length: 19 minutes 
Solving quadratic equations
This video is about the solution of quadratic equations. These take the form ax2+bx+c = 0. We will look at four methods: factorisation, completing the square, using a formula, and solution using graphs.Length: 50 minutes 
Simultaneous Linear Equations
Solving a pair of simultaneous equations is equivalent to finding the location of the point of intersection of two straight lines This video looks at the main methods of solving simultaneous linear equations  elimination, substitution and then looks at further examples and how to approach them.Length: 34 minutes 
Solving Inequalities
This video explains linear and quadratic inequalities and how they can be solved both algebraically and graphically. It includes information on inequalities in which the modulus symbol is used.Length: 26 minutes 
Solving Cubic Equations
Cubic equations have either one real root, or three real roots. In this video we explore why this is so, how to solve them to find the roots and how to use graphs to solve them.Length: 21 minutes 
Simplifying Algebraic Fractions
This involves simplifying fractions to their lowest equivalent form, fractions that need to be factorised before simplifying and looks at common mistakes made when cancelling.Length: 18 minutes 
Polynomial Division
In order to simplify certain sorts of algebraic fraction we need a process known as polynomial division. This video describes this process using normal long division as a parallel example.Length: 13 minutes 
Partial_Fractions
This video looks algebraic fractions, adding and subtracting fractions and spliting fractions into partial fractions, It explains the meaning of the terms 'proper fraction' and 'improper fraction', and how to express an algebraic fraction as the sum of its partial fractions.Length: 32 minutes
