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 11 – Finding Distances on a Coordinate Plane

Before we start to find the distances of lines, there are three different types of lines that you can find. The first one is a horizontal line, a horizontal line is a line that is a straight line that goes from left to right. And on a coordinate plane, a horizontal line runs parallel to […]

# 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 8 – Math 10 – Relations and Variables

To start off with, what are relations? Well, a relation is a comparison between two sets of elements (also know as numbers) For example the cost of bagged candy is related to the weight. In this example, the cost can also be called the dependent variable, output, y, and the range. When the weight is […]

# Week 7 – Math 10 – Factoring Ugly Polynomials

When factoring is already difficult to do at times if you don’t know where to start, factoring ugly polynomials are twice as hard. So here is an easy and fun way to get the answer quickly. Firstly, what are ugly polynomials? Are they ugly by the way they look? No! Ugly polynomials are polynomials that […]

# 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 […]

# Week 5 – Math 10 – Multiplication of Polynomials

Compared to last year where we only did the multiplication of monomials and there was one way that we could evaluate the expression. However, with the multiplication of polynomials, there are a couple of ways. Before moving on to two of the ways of evaluating the polynomial, here is a short review of them. What […]
