Week 11 – Math 10

This week in math I learned how to take information from an equation and put it onto a graph and explain which terms are dependent and independent of each other. For example, data can be modelled by the formula N(t) = 150 – 10t, where N(t) is the daily number of cups of hot chocolates […]

Week 10 – Math 10

Terms: Input – X-axis Output– Y-axis This week in math, I learned about functions which are special relations. They are different from relations because relations have many multiple outputs on the input. For example, if we write out the multiples of 4,5, and 6 there are many multiples out of the three that have numbers […]

Week 9 – Math 10

This week in math, I learned how to find the domain and range. Terms: Domain – set of all numbers for the independent variable in the relation. (x) Range – set of all numbers for the dependent variable in the relation. (y) Opened dot – greater than/less than Coloured dot – greater than or equal […]

Week 8 – Math 10

Our new unit in math is focusing on linear relations. This week, I learned how to find the “x” and “y” axes of an equation. Terms: Intercept – when the line or curve crosses over the axes x-intercept – where “y” is always zero (x,0) y-intercept – where “x” is always zero (0,y) Ordered Pair […]

Week 7 – Math 10

This week in math, I learned briefly how to factor ugly trinomials which will be used a lot in grade 11 pre-calculus math. To factor ugly trinomials, we can either use the inspection method or the box method. The reason is because of the coefficients middle term of the trinomial can be broken down into […]

Week 6 – Math 10

This week in math I learned how to factor simple trinomials. This is when you factor out the answer from a question. With the following example, + 7x + 12, this is how you factor this equation: Before we start factoring, we have to understand the foil or “claw” method. If we have (x+4) (x+2) […]

Week 5 – Math 10

This week in math, I learned a new method on how to multiply binomials visually. The new method being the use of an area model. How To Use an Area Model: To solve the equation, (6 – 2) (8 + x), your first step should be a box that has measurements along the sides regarding […]

Week Four – Math 10

This week in math, I learned how to find the missing angle of a triangle. You always need a reference angle for solving any equation. If you can’t find the missing side length because there is not an angle given, this is how you can find the missing angle with a few steps. Terms: Theta: […]
