  • MathsCasts: Adding and Subtracting Example 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2013)
    We look at several examples of adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers, including examples where there are two immediately adjacent signs (e.g. two negative signs).

  • MathsCasts: Adding and Subtracting Surds 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2013)
    We look at cases when we can add and subtract surds- namely when terms can be re-written with the same number under the square root sign. Two examples are given- in the second example the surds need to be simplified before ...

  • MathsCasts: Addition of Binary Numbers 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2013)
    In this recording, addition of binary numbers is demonstrated, with reference to a specific example.

  • MathsCasts: Angle Between a Line and a Plane 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2011)
    Example where equation of a plane and scalar parametric equations of a line are given. To find the angle between the line and the plane, the equations of the line are converted to vector form, the angle between the line ...

  • MathsCasts: Angle Between Two Planes 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2011)
    This recording starts by giving the general formula for calculating the angle between two planes by finding the angle between their normal vectors. An example is then given to illustrate this.

  • MathsCasts: Area Between Two Curves 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2016)
    An example of using integration to find the area of a region that is bounded by 2 curves.

  • MathsCasts: Boolean Algebra: Example 1 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2011)
    An example of using the laws of Boolean Algebra to simplify a Boolean expression, including use of De Morgan's laws.

  • MathsCasts: Boolean Algebra: Example 2 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2011)
    Example of simplifying a Boolean expression using Boolean Algebra, with particular emphasis on using the rule (p+q)(p+r)=p+qr to help simplify an expression that otherwise would have involved extensive and time-consuming ...

  • MathsCasts: Calculating a Second-Order Derivative Where Implicit Differentiation is Required 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2016)
    This screen cast gives an example of calculating the first and second derivatives of a function where implicit differentiation is required.

  • MathsCasts: Chain Rule Part 2: Variables 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2011)
    Applies the multivariate chain rule to an example where z(x,y), x(t), y(t), to find dz/dt

  • MathsCasts: Changing Base of Logarithms 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2012)
    The general principle of changing base of logs (logarithms) is given and then this is illustrated with a specific example.

  • MathsCasts: Complex Cube Roots 

    Weiss, V. (Vida) (Swinburne Commons, 2012)
    An example of finding the cube roots of a complex number by first converting the number from Cartesian to polar form, then hence using De Moivre's Theorem to find the roots in polar form, and then converting the roots into ...
