Distance Learning Material
The materials provided are taken from three postgraduate modules which students study as part of the School's distance learning MA degree programmes in 'Literary Linguistics', 'Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching' and 'Modern English Language'.

The 'Descriptive Linguistic
If we want to solve for or describe a region in a coordinate plane, we can use linear inequalities. Linear inequalities give us a set of solutions as opposed to just one solution. This video clip explains how to solve linear inequalities using similar methods as in solving multi-step equations, except that there are extra rules when using multiplication and division. We graph linear inequalities by shading regions of number lines or coordinate planes. (6:20)

Basic Instructions on multiplying decimals.
Teaches basic steps for multiplying decimals. Solves problem (4.2 X 5.9) by removing the decimal and working as a whole number. Once solved, shows how to determine the decimal place in the answer by counting the digits behind the decimal in the original problem. Also shows how to round decimal into a whole number to see if answer is correct. Then shows how to solve a problem with no whole number (0.3 X 0.2). Once answered shows how to add zero to whole the whole number place and how to convert t
