This module from the AMSI 'The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project' is for teachers who wish to consolidate their content knowledge on the topic of formulae: what they are, substitution and changing the subject. There are sections that provide history and context for the topic, as well as exercises and examples of how to present and explain the concepts to students.
