Scale factor:For similar polygons, the ratio of the lengths of two corresponding sides. Common:shared Completing the square:a technique for solving quadratic equations. Calculate:To compute; to perform the indicated operation(s). Math:The grammar of size (amount), shape, and/or order. (according to Lancelot Hogben in Mathematics for the Million) The study and description of patterns A way to describe measurements of reality in symbols There are many other ways to define, describe, and use math. No one can name them all, but it is fun and deeply satisfying to investigate them. Multiplication:What is it? The process of repeating additions of the same number. Calculator:a tool used to figure out the answer to a number problem Quadratic formula:The quadratic formula is a formula that gives you a solution to the quadratic equation ax^2 + bx + c = 0. The quadratic formula is obtained by solving the general quadratic equation. Algebra:An area of maths where numbers are represented by letters. Calculator:What is it? A machine for performing arithemtical calculations. Common divisor:a number that will divide a group of two or more other numbers without a remainder. Algebra:Algebra is a continuation and extension of the rules of arithmetic into a more general level. Standard:A reference against which others are compared. For example, if 65 mph is the standard speed limit, any car moving faster than 65 mph is considered to be speeding. Intersection point:The point at which lines or curves meet. Solve:The action of finding the answer to a problem, or the values of the pronumerals, that makes the equation true. Operation:Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are the basic arithmetic operations. Order:Describes the dimensions of a matrix; a matrix with m rows and n columns has order m times n. Equation:An equation is a math sentence that says that 2 things are equal. An equation always has an equal (=) sign. Math:The grammar of size (amount), shape, and/or order. (according to Lancelot Hogben in Mathematics for the Million) The study and description of patterns A way to describe measurements of reality in symbols There are many other ways to define, describe, and use math. No one can name them all, but it is fun and deeply satisfying to investigate them. Algebra:area of math dealing in representing numbers with letters Algebra:Hold it. If you don't know what algebra is (a bunch of letters like x and y and a bunch of rules for playing around with them), then you shouldn't be taking calculus. Return to GO, do not collect 0. Substitution:In Algebra "Substitution" means putting numbers where the letters are: Example 1: If x=5, then what is x + 10/x ? Put "5" where "x" is: 5 + 10/5 = 7 |
