week 13 – math 10

This week we looked at the equation of lines, and learned about general form too. I’m gonna tell you more about general form. This form is mainly useful for entering equations into a computer and for finding missing Y and X intercepts, we can also see that if its in general form then we know […]

week 12 – math 10

This week we looked at liner graphs relations, and smothign that I have taken away fomr the lesson is, point slope form. I find this is one of the easiest forms to find y intercepts, and plotting points. Let me show you. Say we had a been given a random set of points and a […]

week 11 – math 10

this week we specifically looked more into functions and finding the function equations. So I’m gonna show you how to find the function relation using the equation. Let’s say I have, f(x) = 2x – 3  To start let’s first find out what each part represents: f = the function can be any letter in […]

week 10 – math 9

this week we looked at functions! Something that I took away from the lesson was, how to determine what a function is. And why it is different from a relation: its quite simple a relation is the relationship between many different outcomes/outputs of numbers for an input. ex. you have many friends Whereas, a function […]

week 9 – math 10

This week we looked at relations, something that I learned, is 5 ways to represent relations. 1. Table of value (x-input, y-output): 2. ordered pairs (from table of values): 3. Graph (discrete and continous, plotting the ordered pairs): 4. equation (to find ordered pairs, and table of values): 5. mapping diagram (relationships with numbers): Hope […]

week 8 – math 10

This week we looked at Relations, something I learned from the lesson was, Finding X and Y intercepts. Don’t worry it not too hard once you get the gist of it, especially if you know hot to do simple algebra. First, lets look at the formulas: X intercepts: (x,0) Y intercepts: (0,y) I know, your […]

week 7 – math 10

  This week we looked at factoring polynomials deeper. One thing I learned to help me find out how many terms I need to factor a polynomial into is, the exponents on the leading variable, if I have a polynomial like, + 3x + 2, then the leading variable is x, and because it has […]

Week 6 – math 10

This week we learned about factoring polynomials, and something that helped me factor them is a simple list. There are 3 things to check when factoring, 1. Check if there are anything in common (like a GCF, a(b+c) 2. Check is there are 2 terms so you can figure out the interest more easily (2 […]

week 5 – math 10

This week we looked at polynomials and multiplying them. Something that helped me work with polynomials is, the area diagram. It is basically an easier way to multiply 2 polynomials together visually. An example would be, (2x – 4) (-3y +4): When you multiply 2 polynomials together then you must use the distributive property as […]
