T (1)Trig function equal to sin x / cos x.
T (2)A line which intersects a differentiable curve at a point where the slope of the curve equals the slope of the line.
T (1)A cycloid hanging downwards; its special property is that a bead sliding down frictionless wire of this shape will take the same amount of time to reach the bottom no matter how high or low the release point.
T (2)The power series in x – a for a function f .
T (1)To cover a plane with identically shaped pieces which do not overlap or leave blank spaces; pieces do not have to be oriented identically.
T (1)An assertion that can be proved true using the rules of logic; proven from axioms, postulates, or lemmas.
T (2)A linear asymptote (slant) that is neither horizontal nor vertical.
T (2)A set of basic functions used as building blocks for more complicated functions; also known as parent functions.
T (1)Branch of mathematics that explores those properties of geometrical figures that do not change when the figures are deformed by bending, stretching, or molding.
T (1)A surface of revolution obtained by revolving (in three dimensional space) a circle about a line which does not intersect the circle.
T (2)Real numbers that cannot be a root of a polynomial equation with integer coefficients.
T (4)A matrix which is formed by turning all the rows of a given matrix into columns and vice-versa.
T (1)US usage: A quadrilateral with no parallel sides; UK usage: A quadrilateral which has one parallel pair of opposite sides and one non-parallel pair of opposite sides.

T (1)A method of locating the position of an object by observing the direction and/or distance to the object from two or more observation points.
T (1)The property of real numbers which guarantees that for any two real numbers a and b, exactly one of the following must be true: a < b, a = b, or a > b.
T (1)A solution or example that is ridiculously simple and of little interest.
T (2)Prime numbers that are two apart from each other, such as 3 and 5.
U (2)An infinite set that cannot have its elements put into one-to-one correspondence with the set of integers.
U (4)A linear system of equations that has fewer equations than variables.
U (5)Any number that is greater than or equal to all of the elements of the set.
U (5)The parallelogram formed by connecting the midpoints of adjacent sides of a quadrilateral.
V (1)The horizontal line drawn as part of a fraction or radical, serving the same function as parentheses.
W (1)The region between two concentric circles which have different radii.
X (1)Differs from roots or zeros of a function, in that they must be real numbers.
Z (2)The property of a point that indicates no motion is possible without leaving that point.
