7th Grade Vocabulary

absolute value The distance away from 0 (on the number line), making the value positive. We indicate absolute value by putting two bars around the number. |-4|
additive inverse Simply means changing the sign of the number and adding it to the original number to get an answer equal to 0.
decimals A number whose whole number part and the fractional part is separated by a decimal point.
differences Less than; decreased by; subtracted from; fewer
distance The length between two points (or objects).
divisor The number that "goes into" the dividend.
estimation A rough calculation of the value, number, quantity, or extent of something.

negative Are used to describe quantities less than zero.
opposite Positive and negative signs are called opposites. They are both the same number of spaces or the same distance from zero on the number line.
positive Are used to describe quantities greater than zero.
rational numbers Any number that can be written by dividing one integer by another. Any number that can be written as a fraction or ratio.
reciprocal A number that is another number that, when multiplied together, their product is 1. To find this, flip the fraction.
terminates Decimals that end. a decimal which has a finite number of digits, that is, it comes to an end and doesn't go on forever.

markdown Reduce the indicated price of an item
markup Stores and manufacturers usually increase the price of their products to make a profit.
part A ratio that compares a selected number of parts to a number of other parts in a whole. OR a ratio that compares a selected number of parts to the total number of parts in a whole.
percent Means per hundred. Ratios that compare a quantity to 100.
percent decrease A measure of percent change, which is the extent to which something loses value.
percent error A measure of how innaccurate a measurement is, standardized to how large the measurement is
percent increase A measurement of percent change, which is the extent to which a variable gains intensity, magnitude, extent, or value.
proportion A number sentence where two ratios are equal.
sales tax A fee charged on something purchased. Usually determined by a percentage.
simple interest A fee that someone pays in order to borrow money.
tip Money that you give to someone in return for their service.
whole All, everything, total amount.
coefficient Any number that is used to multiply a variable.
distributive property Take the term outside of the variable and multiply it to all the terms inside of the parenthesis.
expression A mathematical phrase that contains numbers, variables, and /or operators.
factor The reverse of the distributive property.
terms A number by itself or the product of a number and variable.
arithmetic The branch of mathematics dealing with the properties and manipulation of numbers.
algebraic Relating to or involving algebra.
equivalent Equal in value, amount,
inequality A mathematical sentence that contains a sign indicating that the values on each side of it are not equal.
solution An assignment of values to the unknown variables that makes the equality in the equation true.
variable A letter or symbol used in place of a quantity we do not know yet.
adjacent angles Angles that share a vertex and a common side.
angle Formed by two rays with a common endpoint.
area The size of a surface or is the amount of space inside a two-dimensional object. Written units squared.
complementary angles Two angles whose sum is 90 degrees.
congruent Angles that are related because they have the same measure.
degree A unit for measuring the size of an angle, or a unit for measuring temperature.
dimension The measurable size of something. Often refers to length, width and height.
distributive property Multiplying a number is the same as multiplying its addends by the number, then adding the products.
polygon A closed plane figure with at least three straight sides.
scale The ratio of the length in the drawing to the actual length.
scale drawing A drawing that is similar to an actual object - just made bigger or smaller.
supplementary angles Two angles whose sum is 180 degrees.
two-dimensional Flat shapes.
vertical angles Angles formed by two intersecting line that are opposite of each other, they have equal measures.

diameter A chord that passes through the center of the circle. Twice the length of the radius.
geometric figures Any point, line, segment, ray, angle, polygon, curve, region, plane, surface, solid, etc. Formally, a geometric figure is any set of points on a plane or in space.
pi The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Equaling 3.14 or 22/7.
