3.2 Congruence

The Division Algorithm tells us that, when we divide any integer by a positive integer n, the set of possible remainders is {0, 1, 2, …, n − 1}. Integers which differ by a multiple of n have the same remainder on division by n and are, in this sense, ‘the same’ as each other. We now

5.2 Other transmission media

Wires are still used to carry electrical signals over short distances. At the time of writing, for example, most connections between telephones in private houses and the local telephone exchange still use wires. The telephone networks within office buildings are mostly connected with wires, and so are many computer networks (local area networks, LANs) within single buildings. However, all longer-distance communication, between towns, cities or countries, uses either optical fibre or microwave

Cave Formations: Kane Cave
At first glance, Wyoming's Kane Cave exhibits few characteristics of the world's most picturesque caves — it lacks mineral deposits, including stalactites and stalagmites, which decorate most cave ceilings and floors. Although the cave is not small, it pales in size against more massive ones, like those of New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns. However, it is not its size that draws scientists to Kane Cave, but another compelling aspect of the cave. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, watch a

You may be one of the lucky few who only needs to write one draft. Or, if you have taken some time over your planning, one draft before the final version may be enough. But if you are finding it difficult to reconcile opposing points of view or to fit in a great deal of information, you may need

6.7 What about alternatives to secession?

We have seen that in principle there are alternatives: cultural autonomy or a form of federalism. There are alternative ways to recognise 'national' identity apart from secession.

One conclusion to arise from this discussion of secession is that we are not cast adrift without any general principles or guidelines. We have also seen how the complexities of the real political world impinge upon poli
