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.
