Terms in this set (67)
rational number
a number that can be written as a fraction
irrational number
a number that cannot be written as a fraction
commutative property
numbers can be added or multiplied in any way and the answer stays the same
associative property
the way in which numbers are grouped does not change their sum or product
addition property of equality
if you add the same number to each side of an equation, the two sides remain equal
multiplication property of equality
when both sides of an equation are multiplied by the same number, the remaining expressions are still equal
distributive property
to multiply a sum by a number, multiply each addend by the number outside the parentheses
pythagorean theorem
a²+b²=c²/(leg)²+(leg)²=(hypotenuse)²
square roots
multiplying a number by itself
scientific notation
a mathematical method of writing numbers using powers of ten/example:(4.2 x 10²)
standard form
highest degree (exponent of a variable) is written first
gcf
greatest common factor (24 and 18 = 6)
difference of two squares
9x² - 1 = (3x + 1)(3x - 1)
split the middle
2x²-x-3 = 2x²+2x-3x-3
when multiplying or dividing both sides by a negative you...
switch the inequality symbol

≤ or ≥
open circle
< or >
shade above
≥ or >
shade below
≤ or <

opens upward
y-intercept
the y-coordinate of a point where a graph crosses the y-axis
x-intercept
the x-coordinate of a point where a graph crosses the x-axis
absolute value equation
y=IxI
vertex of a parabola (turning point)
the highest or lowest point on the graph
minimum of a parabola
maximum of a parabola
vertex form

range
the set of y values of a function.
slope
the steepness of a line on a graph
average rate of change
change in y/change in x
mean
average
median
the middle score in a distribution; half the scores are above it and half are below it
mode
the value that occurs most frequently in a given data set
range (central tendency)
maximum-minimum

the median of the lower half of the data set
third quartile
the median of the upper half of a data set
interquartile range
the difference between the upper and lower quartiles
box and whisker plot
