A number or the product of a number and one or more variables with whole-number exponents
A number in front of the variable in a monomial.
A sum or difference of monomials.
A polynomial with two terms.
A polynomial with three terms
A number is written in scientific notation if it is written in the form N x 10n where n is an integer and
A fraction in which both the numerator and denominator are polynomials
An unknown quantity usually denoted by a letter such as x.
An equation that can be written in the form , where a, b, and c, are real numbers and .
A number that can be written in the form where a and b are real numbers and
An equation whose graph is a line.
The x-intercept is the ordered pair (a, 0) and is the point where the graph intersects the x-axis
The y-intercept is the ordered pair (0, b) and is the point where the graph intersects the y-axis.
The point, (0, 0) where the x-axis and the y-axis intersect.
The slope of a line is the change in y divided by the change in x.
The set of all acceptable x-values for a function
The set of all resulting y-values.
A function is a set of ordered pairs (x, y) in which no two distinct ordered pairs have the same x-value.
A parabola is the graph of a quadratic function.
The vertex of a parabola is the ordered pair where the parabola intersects its axis of symmetry
Axis of Symmetry
A line passing through the vertex of a parabola that divides the parabola into two symmetrical parts.
An asymptote is a line that a graph approaches as the values of x approach positive or negative infinity.
A function of the form where b > 0 and and x is any real number.
A function of the form where b >0 and .
A logarithm with base 10
A logarithm with base e.
A sequence is a function whose domain is the set of real numbers.
A shorthand way to denote the sum of the first n terms of a sequence.
A sequence in which each term, except the first is found by adding a constant to the preceding term.
Arithmetic means are numbers inserted between the first and last terms of an arithmetic sequence.
A sequence in which each term, except the first is found by multiplying the preceding term by a constant.
Geometric means are numbers inserted between the first and last terms of a geometric sequence.
A situation that has several outcomes
A permutation is an ordered arrangement of items that occurs when no item is used more than once and the order of arrangement makes a difference.
A combination is an ordered arrangement of items that occurs when no item is used more than once and the order of arrangement does not make a difference.
