3.3 The projective plane

We now consider one of the most important non-orientable surfaces – the projective plane (sometimes called the real projective plane). In Section 2 we introduced it as the surface obtained from a rectangle by identifying each pair of opposite edges in opposite directions, as shown in

How to Avoid Financial Crises in the Future
Lots of people did many stupid things for us to get into the current financial mess. Now, the government is stepping up efforts to impose stricter financial regulations to ensure that such things do not happen in future. Will more regulation work? If history is any guide, the answer is no. Over the last 100 years, we've had a financial crisis every 15-20 years. Every time one took place, the government would step in and impose more regulation - only for another crisis to occur 15-20 years later.

ALPS Working interprofessionally
The following assessment has been designed to promote reflection, with a particular emphasis on the sharing of feedback interprofessionally. It is intended to capture immediate feedback from a variety of sources, culminating in a focussed action plan. In addition to your own self-assessment you are encouraged to seek feedback from; - the service user or carer (always consult your practice assessor first) - a student colleague (from your own or a different profession) - a professional such as a p

Globalised Communication Skills and Attributes Map
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 Communication Skills and Attributes Map is produced for use outside health and social care. It is rec

Learning outcomes
In our everyday lives we use we use language to develop ideas and to communicate them to other people. In this unit we examine ways in which language is adapted to express mathematical ideas.

ALPS Common Competency Map - Team Working
The work of ALPS is based on the hypothesis that if students receive feedback from different assessors (including other professionals, peers, service-users etc) in diverse practice situations, then confidence, competence, assessment reliability and interprofessional working skills will all be improved. Communication skills, Team Working and Ethical Practice were selected as the initial competences to focus on as they are common across the QAA benchmarks and professional bodies’ regulatory oc

Policy Analysis of Multi-Actor Systems
This course is about solving complex problems. Our favorite problems are not just technically complex but also characterized by the presence of many different social actors that hold conflicting interests, objectives, and perceptions and act strategically to get the best out of a problem situation. This course offers guidance for policy analysts who want to assess if and how their analysis could be of help, based on the premise that problem formulation is the cornerstone in addressing complex pr

What is the Right Answer
The purpose of this resource is to introduce students to the concept that sometimes there is no one "right" answer to a question or measurement. Students learn to be careful when searching for a right answer to questions such as 'What time is it?' by comparing multiple measurements of the time of day. Students gain an intuitive understanding of the characteristics of imperfect measurements. Using different clocks, students simultaneously record the displayed times. The resulting time measurement

ICT use in school: vision and performance measures
The implementation of ICT in schools requires a vision on ICT use in school, the formulation of clear strategic goals, and the planning and organisation of the use of ICT in school. The pursued goals are those points we want to reach for the learner by setting up ICT use in school. At the same time the pursued goals are the results of using ICT as expected by the stakeholders, being the learner, the teacher, the ICT coordinator, and on an indirect way the parents, the environment and the funding
