an expression or a proposition, often algebraic, asserting the equality of two quantities
the process of obtaining the magnitude of a quantity. It answers the general question,'how many'
representation of something (sometimes on a smaller scale) or a hypothetical description of a complex entity or process
is a relationship between two variables in which change in one variable is associated with a change in the other variable in the same direction
The system devised around the convenience of the number ten. It is the world's most widely used system of measurement
a concise verbal or mathematical statement of a relation that expresses a fundamental principle of science that is viewed to hold tru universally
to estimate (the value of a variable) outside the tabulated or observed range
Metric standard of measurement
Established mathematical quantity used to shift from one system to another.
An orderly technique of investigation that is supposed to account for scientific progress
A method of converting units within a measurement system
the horizontal axis in a plane coordinate system
A tentative explanation for an observation, phenomenon, or scientific problem that can be tested by further investigation
The variable being manipulated or changed
Defn
Term
The observed result of a variable being manipulated
numerical short-hand which uses powers of ten as a simplified way of expressing numerical values
to estimate (the value of a variable) within the tabulated or observed range
A relationship between two variables such that one is proportional to a power of the other
a relationship that gives a hyperbolic graph
The rise-over-run of an invisible line that is the 'best fit' line through the previous n data points
those digits that carry meaning reflecting the accuracy of their measurement
approximating the solution based on significant figures
the vertical axis in a plane coordinate system
Standard of measurement
An inverse or negative relationship is a mathematical relationship in which one variable decreases as another increases
The system of measurement most commonly used in the United States
A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested
The science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two, grouped in traditional fields such as acoustics, optics, mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism.
