A Taylor series in which the reference point is zero.

M (1)

Decimal part of a logarithm.

M (5)

A quantity equal to the average result of an experiment after a large number of trials; also known as the Expected Value.

M (3)

Major theorem of calculus; relates values of a function to a value of its derivative; for a 'nice' function, there is a tangent line parallel to any secant line.

M (4)

Either of the two expressions on either side of an equation.

M (2)

A theorem relating the way two cevians of a triangle divide each other and two of the triangle's sides.

M (1)

Measurement of geometric figures. Includes length, angle measure, area, volume.

M (4)

The width of the largest sub-interval in a partition.

M (2)

The largest known of this type of number is 2^{43,112,609}- 1

M (2)

A geometric figure with one side and one edge.

M (2)

An equation or a system of equations representing real-world phenomena.

M (2)

'Clock Arithmetic'

M (5)

The distance between a complex number and the origin on the complex plane.

M (2)

An argument in the form: If a, then b; a is true; therefore b.

M (2)

An argument in the form: If a, then b; b is false; therefore a is false.

M (1)

A number indicating the degree to which a figure tends to balance on a given line (axis).

M (1)

Any problem that uses more than one variable.

N (2)

Another name for the Natural Logarithm, named after a mathematician.

N (2)

Iterative process uses derivatives that can often help find zeros of a differentiable function; starts with a guess for the zero, formula used to obtain a better approximation; repeated until, after a few steps, the approximation is extremely close to the actual value of the zero; sometimes it backfires & gives successively worse & worse approximations.
