question
relation
set of ordered pairs
question
ordered pair
the x and y coordinates of a point on the coordinate plane
question
coordinate plane
a plane formed by 2 perpendicular lines called axes
question
function
special relation where each x-value is paired with ONLY ONE y-value. (x-values DO NOT repeat, it passes the vertical line test)
question
domain
set of all of the possible x-values. INPUTS
question
range
set of all the possible y-values. OUTPUTS
question
variable
NOT A NUMBER. A letter or symbol that stands for a number. Variables vary or change
question
independent variable
the INPUT or CAUSE in a situationor proble,m. It's the variable YOU CAN control. It's the X variable.
question
dependent variable
the OUTPUT or RESULT in a situation or problem. It's the variable YOU CANNOT control. It's the Y variable. In a equation, its the variable BY ITSELF on one side of the = sign.
question
other names for "x"
domain, independent variable, input
question
other names for "y"
range, dependent variable, output
question
vertical line test
a relation is a function and passes the vertical line test if when a vertical line is drawn through the graph, it touches the graph only ONE time.
question
discreet function
data appears as individual point on a graph. Whatever is being graphed cannot be broken down in to smaller pieces......like stairs or people.
question
continuous function
data appears as a smooth curve on a graph. Whatever is being graphed can be broken down in to smaller pieces......like time.
question
words for "<"
less than, is smaller than, below
question
words for ">"
more than, is greater than, is larger than, above
question
in y = mx + b, "m" stands for?
slope
question
in y = mx + b, "b" stands for?
the y-intercept
question
changing the "m" in the slope-intercept form of the equation of a line changes what?
the steepness of the line
question
changing the "b" in the slope-intercept form of the equation of a line changes what?
moves the line up or down the y-axis.
question
what is the linear parent function?
y = x
question
define slope
the steepness of a line, vertical change/horizontal change
question
how is slope important for linear equations and lines?
linear equations and lines have CONSTANT slopes. The slope is the SAME all the way up and down the line.
question
what slope does a HORIZONTAL line have?
slope = 0
question
what slope does a VERTICAL line have?
undefined slope
question
what is the x-intercept?
the point where the graph crosses the x-axis. It has the coordinates (x, 0)
question
what is the y-intercept?
the point where the graph crosses the y-axis. It has the coordinates (0, y)
question
What is Direct Variation?
y = mx, or y = ax, or y = kx. m, a, or k is just the coefficient in front of the x. They are also the SLOPE of the direct variation line. Direct variation lines have a y-intercept ot (0, 0)
question
What is Inverse Variation?
y = 1/x. As one quantity increases, the other decreases
question
what is a linear inequality?
It is an equation with a <, >, < or =, > or = in the place of the =.
question
How do the slopes of parallel lines compare?
They are the same
question
How do the slopes of perdendicular lines compare?
They are opposite and fraction is flipped. Example: lines with the slopes -2 and 1/2 are perpendicular.
question
What is a line of best fit?
A line drawn through the points on a scatterplot to estimate the best line through the data.
question
What is a system of equations?
2 or more equations graphed on the same coordinate plane
question
What is the SOLUTION of a system of equations?
where the lines touch or cross
question
How many solutions can a system 2 equations have?
1) no solutions, if the lines are parallel and have the same slope. 2) one solution, if the lines intersect at one point. 3) infinite many solutions, if the two equations are the same and touch each other everywhere.
question
What is a quadratic equation or function?
an equation of function that has "x-squared" as its highest order exponent. Example: 2x^2 + x + 3
question
Where are the solutions of a quadratic function?
at the x-intercepts. They are also known as zeros and roots.
question
What are "like terms"?
mathmatical terms that have the SAME variables raised to the SAME exponents.
question
How do you combine like terms?
