Algorithm. An established step-by-step procedure used to achieve a desired result. For example, the 55 addition algorithm for the sum of two two-digit numbers where carrying is required: 82 Arbitrary unit (of measure). Associative property. 3 + 9 + 7 = (3 + 9) + 7 = 3 + (9 + 7) 12 + 7 = 3 + 16 19 = 19 3 x 9 x 7 = (3 x 9) x 7 = 3 x (9 x 7) 27 x 7 = 3 x 63 189 = 189 Attribute (measurable). An identifiable property of an object, set, or event that is subject to being measured. For example, some of the measurable attributes of a box are its length, weight, and capacity (how much it holds). Box plot. A graphic method that shows the distribution of a set of data by using the median, quartiles, and the extremes of the data set. The box shows the middle 50% of the data; the longer the box, the greater the spread of the data. spread of the data. Central tendencies.

##### Contents All odd numbers are prime? The cat with nine tails What is 2 times 2? Lost in a balloon ... The Nature of Pi or continue on to The Comics (comics page may take a while to load) Several students were asked the following problem: Prove that all odd integers are prime. Well, the first student to try to do this was a math student. He says "Hmmm... Well, 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, and by induction, we have that all the odd integers are prime." Of course, there are some jeers from some of his friends. The physics student then said, "I'm not sure of the validity of your proof, but I think I'll try to prove it by experiment." He continues, "Well, 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is ... uh, 9 is an experimental error, 11 is prime, 13 is prime... Well, it seems that you're right." The third student to try it was the engineering student, who responded, "Well, actually, I'm not sure of your answer either. Let's see... 1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is ..., 9 is ..., well if you approximate, 9 is prime, 11 is prime, 13 is prime... Well, it does seem right." Not to be outdone, the computer science student comes along and says "Well, you two sort've got the right idea, but you'd end up taking too long doing it. I've just whipped up a program to REALLY go and prove it..." He goes over to his terminal and runs his program. Reading the output on the screen he says, "1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime, 1 is prime...."

##### Why is the letter m used for slope in equations?
This question has been researched by math historians but has not yet been answered definitively. Many people have been taught that m comes from the French monter, to climb, but this appears to be an 'urban legend.' Although m can stand for "modulus of slope" and the term "modulus" has often been used for "the essential parameter determining," there is no definitive proof that this is the derivation of m. M. Risi, the author of math textbooks written in French for students of Quebec province, says that in his system, "the first letters of the alphabet, a, b, c... represent the constants, the last letters, x, y, z, represent the unknown variables, and the middle letters, m, n, p... represent the parameters." When he started to explain slope, it was in studying the first degree equation: y = mx + b. X and y were the variables, b was fixed and considered as a constant, and was appended to the coefficient of x as its value variedso it was a parameter, and that is why m was selected. Prof. John Conway points out, however, that M. Risi was not the first person to use 'm' to represent slope. Thus the jury is still out on this question.

10. Origins Of Some Arithmetic Terms
Origins of some math terms. Back to Math Words Alphabetical Index. The term became very popular in the areas of math focused on computing and computation.
http://www.pballew.net/arithme1.html
 Origins of some Math terms Back to Math Words Alphabetical Index Abscissa is the formal term for the x-coordinate of a point on a coordinate graph. The abscissa of the point (3,5) is three. The word is a conjunction of ab (remove) + scindere (tear). Literally then, to tear or cut apart, as a line perpendicular to the x-axis would do to the coordinate plane. The main root is closely related to the Latin root from which we get the word scissors. Leibniz apparently coined the mathematical use of the term around 1692. Absolute Value The word absolute is from a variant of absolve and has a meaning related to free from restriction or condition. It seems that the mathematical phrase was first used by Karl Weierstrass in reference to complex numbers. In "The Words of Mathematics", Steven Schwartzman suggests that the use of the word for real values only became common in the middle of the 20th century. For complex numbers the absolute value is also called magnitude or length of the complex number. Complex numbers are sometimes drawn as a vector using an Argand Diagram After posting a request for information to the Historia Matematica discussion group about the use of the tilde to indicate absolute difference in England I received the following update from Herbert Prinz: Acute is from the Latin word acus for needle, with derivatives generalizing to anything pointed or sharp. The root persists in the words acid (sharp taste), acupuncture (to treat with needles) and acumen (mentally sharp). An acute angle then, is one which is sharp or pointed. In mathematics we define an acute angle as one which has a measure of less than 90

##### Math Crosswords
By: Cheryl Harrigan Introduction: Learn your math vocabulary the fun way! Everyone knows math is a foreign language. A lot of what makes math hard is the language your teacher uses when he/she talks math to you. Speaking the language can make math easier to understand. Prior Knowledge: None! This is for beginners. Grade Level: Task: You and your classmates will create crossword puzzles that use the definitions of math terms you use as clues. The terms will be the answers which go into the puzzle. After making your puzzle, you will trade with another student and solve their puzzle. When you're done, you should be able to understand that strange "mathspeak" your teacher does daily in class. Resources:
Mathematics Glossary - Middle Years

Math Dictionary

Puzzlemaker

You can also use the glossary in the student text or a teacher provided vocabulary list instead of the online dictionary. Process: First decide on what math terms you and your classmates need to learn. Then find their definitions in the online dictionary (or somewhere else). Next you will build a crossword puzzle using those terms and using their definitions as clues. Trade puzzles with someone else. You will build your vocabulary as you solve the puzzle. Learning Advice: You may wish to exclude terms that have no relevance to the math you are learning. You may want to make a really tough puzzle to challenge your teacher.
