M (2)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 243,112,609- 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.

N (2)In linear algebra, a square matrix N such that Nk=0 for some positive integer k.
N (2)A ring in which every non-empty set of ideals has a maximal element.
N (2)Not next to.
N (2)A singular matrix; a square matrix which does not have an inverse
N (2)A square matrix which has an inverse.
N (4)The width of the largest sub-interval in a partition.
N (1)At a 90° angle.
N (2)The statement in a hypothesis test that is either rejected, or not rejected, but never accepted.
O (2)A flattened sphere; more formally, a surface of revolution obtained by revolving an ellipse about its minor axis.
O (1)Tilted at an angle; neither vertical nor horizontal.
O (1)A polyhedron with eight faces
O (1)The eight regions into which three dimensional space is divided by the x-, y-, and z-axes.
O (2)A function with a graph that is symmetric with respect to the origin; f(–x) = –f(x).
O (3)Either a limit from the left or a limit from the right.
O (4)A function for which every element of the range of the function corresponds to exactly one element of the domain.
O (2)Numerical words that indicate order.
O (1)At a 90° angle.
O (1)Any data point more than 1.5 interquartile ranges (IQRs) below the first quartile or above the third quartile.
O (4)A linear system of equations in which there are more equations than there are variables.
