This week, we learnt what “systems of linear equations” meant. All it really means is that there’s more than 1 line. There are 3 different scenarios where this would occur if you are using straight lines. Scenario 1: The most… Continue Reading →

This week, we’ve learnt what a slope is and how to write it out numerically. Here is our line. The first thing you want to consider with a slope is if it’s positive or negative. The way to figure this… Continue Reading →

This week, we learnt how to find the equation of a straight line. The equation for a straight line is y=mx+b. We know the x and y represent any coordinate on the line. But what does the m and b… Continue Reading →

This week, I learnt how to solve a function notation equation. Function notation equations look complicated when first viewed, but aren’t as complex as they seem. Here is our practice equation: If f(1) = p, what is f(p)? First, you… Continue Reading →

This week I’ve learnt that there is a difference between square brackets [ ] and curved brackets ( ) and what it signifies. Let’s use an example on a graph. The points on this graph are -3 and +3. But… Continue Reading →

This week, I learnt how to factor trinomials that follow the pattern Our example will be The first value in the trinomial can only be The second value in the trinomial has to be (In this example we use 6x)…. Continue Reading →

This week, I learnt how to spot the difference between a function and a normal relation. This is fairly easy to do once you understand the basic concept. A function is a relation that has no repeating X value. This… Continue Reading →

This week, I learnt in which order to factor equations. First, you need to take out any common numbers. – Next you’ll want to check if it follows the pattern As this equation does not, we don’t need to do… Continue Reading →

This week, I’ve learnt how to find the leading term and coefficient in a polynomial. The first thing to look for in your polynomials are the variables. In this equation, there are 3 different parts with variables. and Next, you’ll… Continue Reading →
