Modern Syllabus Algebra presents topics of traditional and modern algebra found in the Teachers Certificate and B.Ed, part I syllabuses of University Institutes of Education. It also contains additional exercises taken from examination papers of the University of London Institute of Education (the Teachers' Certificate). The book discusses several mathematical concepts such as sets, relations and functions, Boolean algebra, groups, and number systems. It also illustrates linear equations, matrices, and vector spaces and then demonstrates how to solve complex numbers and combine probabilities. Mathematics teachers will find this text a suitable and convenient way of bringing themselves up to date in what is now being taught in schools.
