Algebra and Linear Modelling

approx. 9 hrs

6 topics

22 concepts

Enrol in Algebra and Linear Modelling to master algebraic manipulation and modelling.

Available in


Algebra and Linear Modelling covers formulae, equations and linear relationships. We help students develop a confident ability to manipulate algebraic formulae to solve related practical problems such as stopping distance of vehicles, blood alcohol content and medication dosages. In addition, students will learn to work effectively with linear models to solve direct variation problems.
