Introduction
The Egyptians are known for being ahead of their time in comparison to some civilisations that came after them. This unit looks at how the Egyptians solved mathematical problems in everyday life and the technology they used. An understanding of this area has only been possible following the translation of the Rosetta Stone.

Developing modelling skills
This unit is the third in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modellng. It provides an overview of the processes involved in developing models, starting by explaining how to specify the purpose of the model. It then moves on to look at aspects involved in creating models, such as simplifying problems, choosing variables and parameters, formulating relationships and finding solutions. You will also look at interpreting results and evaluating models. This unit assumes that you have pr

Introduction
This unit is the fourth in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you will be taken through the whole modelling process in detail, from creating a first simple model, through evaluating it, to the subsequent revision of the model by changing one of the assumptions. The problem that will be examined is one based on heat transfer. This unit assumes you have studied Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2) and Developing

An overview of active galaxies
Active galaxies provide a prime example of high energy processes operating in the Universe. This unit gives an overview of active galaxies, including the supermassive black holes that power the engines at their centres, and the emission processes by which we detect and study them. It also gives practice in mathematical techniques for analysing data and theoretical models.

Globalised Ethical Awareness Skills and Attributes Map.pdf
ALPS has produced three Common Competency Maps which can be used across 16 health and social care professions to assess competence. The Maps cover Communication, Team Working and Ethical Practice. ALPS has received feedback from other professions who have expressed an interest in using the Maps to demonstrate skills and abilities of students. It is with this in mind that the following Globalised Ethical Awareness Skills and Attributes Map is produced for use outside health and social care. It is

Introduction
This is the fifth and final unit in the MSXR209 series on mathematical modelling. In this unit we revisit the model developed in the first unit of this series on pollution in the Great Lakes of North America. Here we evaluate and revise the original model by comparing its predictions against data from the lakes before finally reflecting on the techniques used. This unit assumes you have studied Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2), Developing model
