CXC math topic: ALGEBRA (2010)



CXC General Proficiency Math Topic:   ALGEBRA (2010)

 

GENERAL OBJECTIVES

On completion of this section, students should:

1. appreciate the use of algebra as a language and a form of                         communication;

2. appreciate the role of symbols and algebraic techniques in solving               problems in mathematics and related fields;

3. demonstrate the ability to reason with abstract entities.

 

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES:

Students should be able to:

 

CONTENT
1. use symbols to represent numbers, operations, variables, and relations;

Symbolic representation.

 

2.

translate statements expressed algebraically into verbal phrases;

 

 

3.

perform arithmetic operations involving directed numbers;

 

 

4.

perform the four basic operations with algebraic expressions;

 

 

 

5.

substitute numbers for algebraic symbols in simple algebraic expressions;

 

 

 

6. perform binary operations (other than the four basic ones);

 

 

7.

apply the distributive law to factorize or expand algbraic expressions;

For example, x(a+b) = xa+xb and (a+b) (x+y) = (a+b)x + (a+b)y = ax+bx+ay+by

8.

simplify algebraic fractions;

 

 

9.

use the laws of indices to manipulate expresssions with integral indices;

 

 
10

solve linear equations in one unknown;

 

.

11

solve simultaneous linear equations, in two unknowns, algebraically;

 

 
12

solve a simple linear inequality in one unknown;

 

 
13

change the subject of formulae;

 

 
14

factorize algebraic exxpressions;

 

a2-b2; a2 ± 2ab + b2

ax+ bx + ay + by

ax2 + bx + c where a, b, c are integers and a ≠0

15 solve quadratic equations;

 

 
16

solve word problems;

 

 
17

solve a pair of equations in two variables when one equation is quadratic or non-linear and the other is linear;

 

Optional specific objective
18

prove two algebraic expressions to be identical;

 

 
19

represent direct and indirect variation symbolically;

 

 
20

solve problems involving direct variation and inverse variation.
