## Fractions

Definition Fraction is a number written with a numerator and a denominator, in which both are natural numbers. Numerator: the top number of fraction Denominator: the top bottom of fraction So, fraction is written as Numerator / Denominator Examples Fraction Numerator Denominator 1 2 2 3 3 4 7 40 99 123 Learn More Simplest … Continue reading "Fractions"

## Simplest Form of Fractions

Simplest form of A fraction is a fraction that has the top and bottom cannot be any smaller (simplified), while still being whole numbers. How to simplify a fraction? Divide the top and bottom by the greatest number that will divide both numbers exactly (Greatest Common Factor), they must stay whole numbers. Examples Fraction Greatest … Continue reading "Simplest Form of Fractions"

## Metric Mass (Weight)

Mass: how much matter is in an object. We measure mass by weighing, but Weight and Mass are not really the same thing. The most common measurements: Grams Kilograms Tonnes Grams Grams are written as g (for short), so 250 g = 250 grams Kilograms 1 kilogram = 1,000 grams Kilograms are written as kg … Continue reading "Metric Mass (Weight)"

## Geometry

Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, & the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer. There are some general concepts that are more or less fundamental to geometry. These include the concepts of points, lines, planes, … Continue reading "Geometry"

## Calculus

Calculus is the mathematical study of continuous change. The 2 branches are related to each other by the fundamental theorem of calculus. Both branches make use of the fundamental notions of convergence of infinite series & infinite sequences to a well-defined limit. Derivatives (Differential) Differentiable Common Derivatives Implicit Differentiation Homogeneous Differential Equations Integration (Integral) Integration … Continue reading "Calculus"

## Data

Data is a set of values of subjects with respect to qualitative or quantitative variables. Data is measured, collected and reported, and analyzed, whereupon it can be visualized using graphs, images or other analysis tools. Raw data or unprocessed data is a collection of numbers or characters before it has been “cleaned” and corrected by … Continue reading "Data"

## Algebra

Algebra (“al-jabr”, from Arabic) literally meaning “reunion of broken parts”. Algebra is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. In its most general form, algebra is the study of mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols. It includes everything from elementary equation solving to the study … Continue reading "Algebra"

## Numbers

A number is a mathematical object used to measure, count, & label. In common usage, number may refer to mathematical object, a word or phrase, or a symbol. The notion of number has been extended over the centuries to include 0, negative numbers, rational numbers such as 2/5 and −1/3, real numbers such as √2 … Continue reading "Numbers"
