Simplifying Radicals: Solving Systems of Equations: Foldable Booklets

Try this one instead. What you see here are little booklets with tabs. One each for solving systems by graphing, substitution, and elimination. From Wolfram MathWorld. Cone Construction Calculator. A cone is constructed by taking a circle sector of radius L and angle θ and joining the two straight edges together.

Cone Construction Calculator

And any cone without a closed base can be formed back into a circle sector by cutting a straight line from the nape to the base and flattening the resulting figure. If you are given L and θ, you can plug these values into equations to find the height (H) and base radius (R) of the corresponding cone. Likewise, if you are given H and R, you can plug these values into equations to find L and θ. What is the formula for the length of an arc? Arc Length. Part of the circumference First i'll cover some arc definitions, alternatively you can jump straight to how to find arc length.

Arc Length

Arc definition: A section of the circumference We would call this arc AB, after it's endpoints. S= r θ Formula and Equation for the central angle in radian measure. There is a formula that relates the arc length of a circle of radius, r, to the central angle , in radians.

S= r θ Formula and Equation for the central angle in radian measure

Formula for The picture below illustrates the relationship between the radius, and the central angle in radians. The formula is where s represents the arc length, represents the central angle in radians and r is the length of the radius. Demonstration of the Formual The interative demonstration below illustrates the relationship between the central angle of a circle, measured in radians, and the length of the intercepted arc.

My name is Harold and I have tutored hundreds of students in math, science and engineering over the past 25 years. I worked in the BYU Math Lab to pay my way through college where I earned a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in mathematics. I have even published a book and software package used by several universities on numerical analysis with the C programming language.

I tutor all levels of math, from prealgebra through calculus 3 and beyond. AP Calculus AB/BC, AP Physics, and Pre-AP Precalculus are my specialties. I love teaching students that really want to learn and have set a goal, but are either behind or are not connecting with their teachers. My teaching style is to show multiple ways to solve the same problem, then how to verify the answer as being correct. In addition to math and physics I also tutor chess and the C/C++ computer programming language. Online tools - maths online. One of many scientific calculators on the web.

It accepts brackets, functions like sin, cos, tan, exp, log, sqrt, pow, asin, acos, atan, gamma, the constants E und PI. Make your own Graphs. Equations. Printables - Math Concentration. Area and Volume. By Keith Enevoldsen Have you memorized some of the area and volume formulas, like A = πr2, without understanding the explanation for the formulas?

Area and Volume

This is an attempt to explain all the basic area and volume formulas as simply and intuitively as possible, starting with the easy ones and building up to the more difficult formulas for the area and volume of a sphere. Areas of Plane Figures Rectangles and Parallelograms Area of a rectangle or parallelogram with base b and height h is bh. Triangles Area of a triangle with base b and height h is bh/2. Polygons Area of any polygon can be determined by breaking it into simpler areas. Circles Area of a circle is πr2. Surface Areas and Volumes of Solids. Exponents and Radicals in Algebra - She Loves Math. This section covers: We briefly talked about exponents in the Powers, Exponents, and Radicals section, but we need to go a little bit further in depth and talk about how to do algebra with them.

Exponents and Radicals in Algebra - She Loves Math

Note that we’ll see more radicals in the Solving Radical Equations and Inequalities section, and we’ll talk about Factoring with Exponents, and Exponential Functions in the Exponential Functions section. Remember that exponents, or “raising” a number to a power, are just the number of times that the number (called the base) is multiplied by itself. Radicals (which comes from the word “root” and means the same thing) means undoing the exponents, or finding out what numbers multiplied by themselves comes up with the number.

So we remember that. Thoughts on Transformations in Math Education. This was my go-to review activity.

I picked it up at an un-unconference as a student teacher. First, have students get in groups of four. This is their home group. Have students number themselves from one to four. Home Groups.

The Teacher Garden: Math Word Problem Strategies. If you don't already know, I started my own tutoring business this year when I realized I wasn't going to get to teach every day.

The Teacher Garden: Math Word Problem Strategies

(Substituting is a wonderful opportunity and allows me to glean so many ideas, but I simply cannot expect to get a sub job every day!) About 80% of my students receive my tutoring services in math. I saw this phenomenon when I was student teaching in 2nd grade, but it has really stuck out as I have tutored my students in math this year: word problems are a stumbling block for many, many students. There is just something about combining letters with what kids have traditionally known as an "all-number subject" that freaks them out (algebra, anyone?). I have seen a few school districts use a couple of techniques in particular to help students combat this word-problem fear. The first is called the C.U.B.E. method: Circle the numbers. Let me give you an example of how this works. Mr. (I borrowed this practice word problem from Tips 4 TAKS.)

Mr. Bradshaw-Handouts. The following files are the handouts used by the Ohlone College Math Department. They are available in printed form from the Math Learning Center in Hyman Hall. Math Scene - Functions 2 - Lesson 6 - Inverse functions. Lesson 6 Inverse functions We have already seen some functions that are the inverse of each other. The functions f(x) = x2 and g(x) = √x are the inverse of each other if we limit the x values to non - negative numbers. Pre-calculus OLD, 2nd Quarter. Another thing we want to do with the rational functions is to apply the transformations we learned in Unit 04. We just applied these to the polynomials, so they should be fairly fresh in your mind.

But just as a reminder. y = ƒ(x) scales the entire function by a constant . Constructing a best fit line. Best-fit lines can also be called: Linear regression Trend lines Questions that ask you to draw a best fit line or trend in the data usually do not want you to "connect the dots". Instead, the question is asking you to think about how the two sets of data behave in relation to one another.
