“The absolute value of a real number is defined as the principal square root of the square of number.” Which means the absolute value of a real number is the square root of a squared number. The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero (0) on a number line. This ignores the “+” […]

# DNA and Protein Synthesis

DNA is made up of molecules called nucleotides. Each nucleotide contains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. The four types of nitrogen bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C). The order of these bases is what determines DNA’s instructions, or genetic code. DNA has two purines and

# Week Two: Geometric Series

Geometric Series: 3+9+18+36… You know its a geometric series because it is being multiplied every time by 3. This is called the “r” or the ratio. If you don’t know what the ratio is by looking at the series then we take a term and the one before it and divide it. (9/3) Using the […]

# Quadratic Blog

1.I had some trouble with finding the vertex 2. y = 3×2 + x – 2 3. To find the vertex, I look at the coefficients a, b, and c. The formula for the vertex gives me: h = –b/2a = –(1)/2(3) = –1/6 Then I can find k by evaluating y at h = –1/6: k […]
