Elementary mathematics

# Elementary mathematics

• Calculation
A calculation is a deliberate process that transforms one or more inputs into one or more results, with variable change.
• Cartesian coordinate system
A Cartesian coordinate system is a coordinate system that specifies each point uniquely in a plane by a pair of numerical coordinates, which are the signed distances to the point from two fixed perpendicular directed lines, measured in the same unit of length.
• Distance
Distance is a numerical description of how far apart objects are.
• Function (mathematics)
In mathematics, a function is a relation between a set of inputs and a set of permissible outputs with the property that each input is related to exactly one output.
• Identity (mathematics)
In mathematics an identity is an equality relation A = B, such that A and B contain some variables and A and B produce the same value as each other regardless of what values (usually numbers) are substituted for the variables.
• Integer
An integer (from the Latin integer meaning "whole") is a number that can be written without a fractional component.
• Line segment
In geometry, a line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points, and contains every point on the line between its endpoints.
• Order of magnitude
Orders of magnitude are written in powers of 10.
• Real number
In mathematics, a real number is a value that represents a quantity along a line.
• Rational number
In mathematics, a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient or fraction p/q of two integers, a numerator p and a non-zero denominator q.
• Sequence
In mathematics, a sequence is an enumerated collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed.
• Elementary mathematics
Elementary mathematics consists of mathematics topics frequently taught at the primary or secondary school levels.
• Linear function (calculus)
In calculus and related areas of mathematics, a linear function from the real numbers to the real numbers is a function whose graph (in Cartesian coordinates with uniform scales) is a line in the plane.
• Elementary algebra
Elementary algebra encompasses some of the basic concepts of algebra, one of the main branches of mathematics.
• Identity function
In mathematics, an identity function, also called an identity relation or identity map or identity transformation, is a function that always returns the same value that was used as its argument.
• Periodic function
In mathematics, a periodic function is a function that repeats its values in regular intervals or periods.
• Exponential growth
Exponential growth is a phenomenon that occurs when the growth rate of the value of a mathematical function is proportional to the function's current value, resulting in its growth with time being an exponential function.
• Curve sketching
In geometry, curve sketching (or curve tracing) includes techniques that can be used to produce a rough idea of overall shape of a plane curve given its equation without computing the large numbers of points required for a detailed plot.
• Equation solving
In mathematics, to solve an equation is to find what values (numbers, functions, sets, etc.) fulfill a condition stated in the form of an equation (two expressions related by equality).
• Constant function
In mathematics, a constant function is a function whose (output) value is the same for every input value.
