Term | Definition |
---|---|

Expression | n mathematics, an expression is a finite combination of symbols that is well-formed according to rules that depend on the context. Mathematical symbols can designate numbers, variables, operations, functions, punctuation, grouping, and other aspects of lo |

Term | more ... In Algebra a term is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. Terms are separated by + or − signs. |

Factor | Factors are numbers you can multiply together to get another number |

power | The Power of a number shows you how many times to use the number in a multiplication. It is written as a small number to the right and above the base number. |

Exponent | The exponent of a number says how many times to use that number in a multiplication. It is written as a small number to the right and above the base number. |

base | The rules that say which calculation comes first in an expression |

Order of Operations | In mathematics and computer programming, the order of operations (sometimes called operator precedence) is a rule used to clarify which procedures should be performed first in a given mathematical expression. |

Numerical Expression | A numerical expression represents a single value. It consists of one or more numbers and operations. |

Algebraic Expression | An algebraic expression is a mathematical phrase that can contain ordinary numbers, variables (like x or y) and operators (like add,subtract,multiply, and divide). |

Variable | n mathematical terms, the dependent variable y represents the value of a function of x. To simplify formulas, it is often useful to use the same symbol for the dependent variable y and the function mapping x onto y. |

Algebra | The mathematics of working with variables |

Equation | A mathematical sentence built from expressions using one or more equal signs (=). |

math | 2 hour |

commutative property | a property associated with binary operations and functions. Similarly, if the commutative property holds for a pair of elements under a certain binary operation then it is said that the two elements commute under that operation |

Assoaitative |
