Calculus Online Book Math Expression: Free Math Tutor Online Angles - Acute, Obtuse, Straight and Right An angle measures the amount of turn Names of Angles As the Angle Increases, the Name Changes: Try It Yourself: Also: the letter "A" has an acute angle. Be Careful What You Measure Positive and Negative Angles When measuring from a line: a positive angle goes counterclockwise (opposite direction that clocks go) a negative angle goes clockwise Example: −67° Parts of an Angle The corner point of an angle is called the vertex And the two straight sides are called arms The angle is the amount of turn between each arm.

Detexify LaTeX handwritten symbol recognition Want a Mac app? Lucky you. The Mac app is finally stable enough. See how it works on Vimeo. Download the latest version here. Restriction: In addition to the LaTeX command the unlicensed version will copy a reminder to purchase a license to the clipboard when you select a symbol. You can purchase a license here: Buy Detexify for Mac If you need help contact What is this? Anyone who works with LaTeX knows how time-consuming it can be to find a symbol in symbols-a4.pdf that you just can't memorize. How do I use it? Just draw the symbol you are looking for into the square area above and look what happens! My symbol isn't found! The symbol may not be trained enough or it is not yet in the list of supported symbols. I like this. You could spare some time training Detexify. The backend server is running on Digital Ocean (referral link) so you can also reduce my hosting costs by using that referral link. Why should I donate? Hosting of detexify costs some money. No. Yes.

The Quadrants of the Cartesian Plane The Quadrants of the Cartesian Plane (page 3 of 3) Sections: Introduction to the plane, Plotting points, The four quadrants The two axes divide the plane into four sections called "quadrants". The quadrants are labelled with Roman numerals (not Arabic numerals), starting at the positive x-axis and going around anti-clockwise: When you get to trigonometry, this method of numbering the quadrants will make perfect sense and will be very useful. In which quadrant is the point (–2, –3)? The simplest way for me to answer this is to plot the point: Now I can see that the point (–2, –3) is in Quadrant III. In which quadrant is the point (4, y)? Since they don't tell me what the value of "y" is, then y can be anything. By plotting a bunch of points that "work", I can see that the "point" (4, y) is actually an entire line: the line "x = 4", which passes through two quadrants! Quadrants I and IV. By the way, please use standard notation. In which quadrant is / are the point(s) (x, y), such that xy < 0?
