the part of mathematics in which letters and other general symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formulae and equations.

1 of 6

Standard Form

is a way of writing down very large or very small numbers easily. 103 = 1000, so 4 × 103 = 4000 . So 4000 can be written as 4 × 10³

2 of 6

Pythagoras

Pythagoras sought to interpret the entire physical world in terms of numbers, and founded their systematic and mystical study; he is best known for the theorem of the right-angled triangle.

3 of 6

Vectors

a quantity having direction as well as magnitude, especially as determining the position of one point in space relative to another.

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Converting a fraction to a decimal. To change a fraction to a decimal, you divide the top number by the bottom number (divide the numerator by the denominator).

5 of 6

Linear Equations

Geometric interpretation. For a system involving two variables (x and y), each linear equation determines a line on the xy-plane. Because a solution to a linear system must satisfy all of the equations, the solution set is the intersection of these l
