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

base | The number that is going to be raised to a power. |

compound interest | Interest that is paid on both the principal and the previously accrued interest. |

exponential growth | Growth whose rate becomes ever more rapid in proportion to the growing total number or size. |

interest | An amount paid which is a percentage of an initial value (principal). |

linear function | Any function that graphs to a straight line and can be written in the form y=mx+b and ax+by=c. |

relationship | A set of input and output values, usually represented in ordered pairs. |

Commutative Property | A property that states that two terms can be added, then the order may be reversed with no effect on the total. (a+b=b+a) A property that states that two terms can be multiplied, then the order may be reversed with no effect on the total. (ab=ba) |

exponent | It is written as a small number to the right and above the base number that determines how many times to multiply the base with itself. |

factoring | 2y+6 = 2(y+3), so the factors of 2y+6 are 2 and (y+3). |

linear equation | An equation in the form y=mx+b or ax+by=c whose graph is a line. |

period | The length from one peak to the next (or from any point to the next matching point) of a periodic function. |

scientific notation | Where a number is written in two parts: First: just the digits (with the decimal point placed after the first digit),×10 to a power that will put the decimal point back where it should be. |

exponential function | A function whose value is a constant raised to the power of the argument, especially the function where the constant is e. |

function | A relationship in which for each input value there is one and only one output value. |

linear growth | Growth by the same amount in each time step. For example you might have something that is 5 inches long on Monday morning and then 8 inches long on Tuesday morning and then 11 inches long on Wednesday morning and so on. So it is growing by 3 inches a day. |

principal | Initial investment or capital. |

simple interest | Interest paid on the principal alone. |
