Week 17 – Arithmetic Series

What is an Arithmetic series?   While building onto last week’s topic I did, arithmetic is in the same field of ideas when it comes to sequences. A sequence that ends on a certain number (not infinite) is an arithmetic series. We use arithmetic series to find the sum of all of the numbers in […]

Week 16 – Sequences

What are sequences? It is usually a list of numbers but can also be a list of other things. Each of the objects or numbers in the list are called terms, elements, member meaning all the same thing. If the sequence is to go on forever then it is called an infinite sequence. For sequences […]

Week 15 – Solving Systems

What is a system?  In math, a system is a two or more linear equations involving the same set of variables. Meaning each system must have x and y in the equation or what other variables you are using for the equation. One example of a system is this: How to solve a system? There […]

Week 10 – Function Notation

What is a function again? It is a special group that is a part of relations. This group only has one output for every input. This means that all functions are relations but not all relations are functions. An example of a function is how each person only has one biological father. So what is […]

Week 9 – Relations and Functions

What is a relation? A “relation” is just a relationship between sets of information. For example; think of all the people in one of your classes, and think of their heights. The pairing of names and heights is a relation. The set of all the starting points (input) is called “the domain” and the set of […]

Week 6 – Math 10 – Factoring Polynomials

First of all what is factoring? Well, it is the opposite of multiplication and is parallel to division. So when we are factoring polynomials it is basically doing the opposite to what we did in multiplication. Here are three easy steps to factoring : 1) Take out the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) if possible. One […]
