What are negative numbers?
The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, ....

What are whole numbers?
All positive integers and zero

What is zero
An integer that is neither positive nor negative

What are even numbers?
Numbers that are divisible by 2 such as 4, 2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, ....

What are odd numbers?
Integers that are not divisible by 2 such as 3, 1, 1, 3, 5, 7, ......

What are consecutive integers?
Integers in sequence such as 3, 4,5, or 1, 0, 1; they can be represented in general as n, n+1, n+2, (where n is any integer)

What are real numbers?
All numbers, including fractions, decimals, etc; that correspond to points on the number line

What is a factor?
A divisor of an integer, for example 1, 3, 5, and 15 are factors of 15, but 2 is not a factor of 15. Note that 1, 3, 5 and 15 are also factors of 15. ANY integer can be a factor of zero, but zero is a factor of a nonzero integer.

Multiples of an integer n
The product of an integer n and another integer; some multiples of 4 are 8, 4, 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16. Note that 2 is a factor of 4 but is not a multiple of 4. Zero is a multiple of any integer.

What is a prime number?
A positive integer that has exactly 2 diff positive factors; 1 and itself; for example 2,3,5,7, 13 are all prime numbers

What is a reciprocal?
The inverse of a number, that is; one of a pair of numbers whose product is 1; the reciprocal of 5 is 1/5; the reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2.

What is an exponent?
A superscripted number that indicates the number of times to multiply the number by itself for example 3^{4 }indicates 3x3x3x3

What is a number squared?
A number multiplied by itself such as 5^{2} or 5x5=25

What is a number cubed?
A number multiple 3 times by itself such as 5^{3} is 5x5x5=125

What is the square root of a number?
A positive number that when squared produces the given number. The square root of a number n is square root of n. The square root of square root sign then 2 is 1.4.

What is a fraction?
A number in the form a/b, where number "a" is called the numerator and "b" is the denominator. If the numerator is larger than the denominator, it is an improper fraction.

What is an integer?
Integers consist of counting numbers and the negative of the counting numbers such as 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1,2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

What do number properties include?
knowledge of factors and multiples, primes and divisibility, even and odd numbers, and properties of zero and one

what do operation properties include?
knowledge of the commutative, associative and distributive principles

What does computation include?
finding the solution to applied problems, determining information needed, and interpreting and adjusting results of computations

Define variable..
A letter, such as x or n, that is used to represent an unknown quantity

Define equation
A statement of equality between two algebraic expressions; for example, 2n4=10 is a linear equation

Define sequence
an ordered list of numbers, for example 2, 5, 8, and 11, . . . , Note that in this example the first term is 2 and that each term after the first is 3 greater than the preceding term.

Define counterexample
an example that would contradict and example or a claim

strategies for word problems
1.) Decide the info you have and the info you don't
2.) substitute a variable for the unknown quantity
3.) write an equation to express the relationship in given in the problem and solve



liter is the same as
volume

degree Celsius means
temperature






2,000 pounds =
1 short ton





name units of linear measure used for length width and heigth
inches, feet, miles, meters, kilometers

units of linear measure also measure
distance

distance can be measured....
along a path, highway or sidewalk

distance can be measured
in a straight line such as point A to point B

when labeling x and y coordinates which comes first?
(x, y)

formula for a rectangle
A=lw

all squares are rectangles.. true or false
true

are all rectangles , squares? true or false
false

what does the symbol ll mean?
parallel to

what does line mean?
a straight line that stretches to infinity in both directions

what is a line segment
a line segment has two endpoints
 p q
 

define parallel lines
these are two lines in the same plane that do not connect

what are perpendicular lines
two lines that intersect to form four angles of equal measure with each angle equaling 90 degrees

define ray
a ray has one endpoint and extends to infinity on the other end

define an angle
an angle is created two lines, rays, or segments

what is the point where two lines intersect is called the
vertex

when two lines, rays, or segments intersect the opposite angles
have equal measure

a straight angle measure ....... and is represented by ..........
180 degrees,,, straight line

a 90 degree angle is called a ....... angle
right angle

an angle that is less than 90 degrees is called
an acute angle

a angle that is more than 90 degrees is called
an obtuse angle

two angles whose angles measure 90 degrees are called
complimentary angles

two angles whose measures total 180 degrees are called
supplementary angles

the sum of the measures of all the angles in a triangle is
180 degrees

equilateral triangles have
3 equal sides, making each angle 60 degrees

isosceles triangles have
2 equal sides and having two angles of equal measure

right triangles have a
90 degree angle and the side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse. The other 2 sides are called legs

Define ratio
a comparison of two or more quantities; for example, if there are 20 women and 15 men in the classroom, the ratio of the number of women to the number of men is 20 to 15 or 20:15 or 20/15

what is a proportion?
a statement of equality between two ratios; for example in the previous question 20 women to 15 men in the classroom, if another classroom had 3 women to 4 men, you would say 20:15=4:3

if a student takes 2 days to read 1 book, how long does it take the student to read 5 books at the same rate? How would you express this?
2/1=x/5 cross multiply answer is 10

what is associative grouping
 (a+b) +c= a +(b+c)
 (axb) x c= a x (bxc)

what is using commutative order

how do you use the distributive operation property
ax(b+c)=(axb)x(axc)

2x=4y+6
 x=4y+3
 2x4y=6
 2x+1=4y+7
 2x2=4y+4


What is the Pythagorean Theory

distance =
distance =speed x time

time =
time = distance divided by speed

speed =
speed = distance over time

what is median 2, 10, 7, 3, 3
3

what is range 2, 10, 7, 3, 3
the range is eight because the largest number is 10 and 2 is the least number and 102=8
