Applications of Linear Equations
This video clip describes how math is applied to the real world situations through word problems. The applications of linear equations are seen throughout all our math courses after Algebra. To understand applications of linear equations we need to have an understanding of slope, how to interpret a graph, and how to write an equation. In upper-level Algebra, we apply systems of linear equations to these problems as well. (1:45)

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

ALPS Providing information to colleagues
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; - a student colleague (from your own or a different profession) - a professional such as a practice assessor (from your own or a different profession)
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
