Image for Linear relations and the Geometry of Lines

Linear relations are ubiquitous in modern life, from conversions between units to momentum to famous laws of physics such as Ohm's law, Boole's law and Hooke's law for springs. Furthermore linear relations are intimately associated with the geometry of lines in the plane, which are key objects that students must learn both in General Mathematics and Advanced Mathematics. 

This FREE PD course will run in Mar 2017 for the first time. Be sure to join N J Wildberger from the School of Mathematics and Statistics UNSW on this journey from the ancient Greeks to Fermat and Descartes to modern economics.
