Week 7 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we learned about factoring with “difference of squares.” “Difference of squares” is when the expression you have to factor contains perfect squares. In order for “difference of squares” to work, the numbers have to be perfect squares and you have to be subtracting the constant in your expression.   Expression […]

Week 6 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we learned how to factor polynomials (the opposite of expanding.)   Finding GCF – (depending on the type of polynomial and what the expression looks like, steps may vary) Step 1: take your expression (or make one) and separate it into the terms that make it up. Then find all of […]

Week 5 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we talked about multiplying 2 binomials.   Vocab Checklist: A binomial is a mathematical expression consisting of 2 terms. Combining like terms is simplifying your expression. Like terms have the have a similar base and exponent (ie, 4x and 7x are like terms, as are and , as are 9 […]

Week 4 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we learned how to find the missing side length of a right triangle without using a ruler or a protractor using 2 different situations.   First situation (2 side lengths are already given): If 2 side lengths are already given, in order to find the last side length you use […]

Week 3 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we started Trigonometry and learned about sides and angles of right triangles.   Vocab Checklist: Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics dealing with the relation of sides and angles of triangles. A right triangle is a triangle that had a 90° angle in it.   To start off, a right triangle […]

Week 2 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we learned Negative Exponents and how to deal/ get rid of them when necessary.   Vocab Checklist: Negative Exponents are the same as positive ones except they include a negative sign, and in order to solve have to be dealt with. The Reciprocal of a fraction is that same fraction […]

Week 1 – Math 10

This week in Math 10 we learned about Prime Factorization and how to find a number’s prime factors.   Vocab Checklist: Prime Factorization is finding all the prime factors of a number. A Prime Number is a number greater than 1, whose only factors are 1 and itself. A factor is any whole number that […]
