Glossary

Vocabulary Term Definition
addition A mathematical operation that unites two separate quantities into one sum. 2 + 2 = 4 is an example of addition.
algebra A branch of mathematics that uses known quantities to find unknown quantities. In algebra, letters, such as x and y, are sometimes used in place of unknown numbers.
arithmetic The branch of mathematics that involves basic operations. These operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
blueprint The instructions and drawings that are used to manufacture a part. Using blueprints effectively requires a good understanding of math.
calculus A branch of mathematics that measures changes in one quantity in relation to another. Calculus is used for functions involving curves.
cubed A number with an exponent of three. An exponent of three indicates the number should be multiplied by itself three times.
division A mathematical operation that indicates how many equal quantities add up to a specific number. 8 รท 4 = 2 is an example of division.
exponents Numbers that indicate how many times a given number is multiplied by itself. Exponents are also known as powers.
fraction A mathematical expression with two numbers placed above and below a division. This expression indicates the number of divisions or portions and the size of each division or portion.
geometry The branch of mathematics that involves the measurements, properties, and relationships of all shapes and sizes of things. Geometry topics include lines and angles, circles, and triangles.
integers A whole number or its negative equivalent. The numbers -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, and 3 are all integers.
mathematics The study of numbers and quantities and their relationships. Mathematics requires an understanding of the logic and rules used to solve numerical problems.
multiplication A mathematical operation that indicates how many times a number is added to itself. 2 x 4 = 8 is an example of multiplication.
negative Numbers less than zero that represent a reduction or absence of a quantity. -1, -2, and -3 are all examples of negative numbers.
number line A line on which numbers are marked at intervals. On a number line, smaller numbers are placed to the left, with larger numbers placed to the right.
operations A mathematical action or process such as addition or subtraction. A mathematical equation consists of a series of operations.
order of operations The mathematical rules that determine the correct order for solving any sequence of math operations. Solve powers and roots first, then multiplication and division, and finally addition and subtraction.
powers Numbers that indicate how many times a given number is multiplied by itself. Powers are also known as exponents.
root A number that, when multiplied by itself a specified number of times, results in a given number. For example, the square root of 64 is 8.
roots A number that, when multiplied by itself a specified number of times, results in a given number. For example, the square root of 64 is 8.
square root A number that, when multiplied by itself, results in a given number. For example, the square root of 64 is 8.
squared A number with an exponent of two. An exponent of two indicates the number should be multiplied by itself.
subtraction A mathematical operation that takes away a quantity from a larger whole. 4 - 2 = 2 is an example of subtraction.
trigonometry A branch of mathematics that addresses the measurements and relationships of a triangle and its parts. The parts of a triangle include its angles and sides.
whole numbers A number that is equal to or greater than 0 with no fractions or decimals. 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on are all examples of whole numbers.
zero The integer indicating the absence of a quantity or amount. On a number line, zero indicates the point where negative numbers change into positive numbers.
