absolute value

Absolute Value is a positive number that tells how far away a number is from zero - like on a number line.

Tip: The absolute value of a positive number is that same number; the absolute value of a negative number is that same number but as a positive number.

Example:

Find the absolute value. The absolute value is written using a 'bar' on both sides of the number.

mode
the number that is seen most frequent or more times than the others in the set.
mean

The mean is the average of the numbers in a set.

Tip: To find the mean (or average) you have to first add all the values (or numbers) together. Divide the sum by the amount of numbers in the set.

negative numbers
a number less than zero; uses the - symbol before a number
positive numbers
a number greater than zero; may use the symbol + or no symbol at all.
fraction
tells how many parts of a whole you have
fraction line
A fraction line is the slash, or line, between the two numbers. The line can be a / or a ----. Either line separates (divides) two numbers, side-to-side or top and bottom.
numerator
the number above (or top) the fraction line; or to the left of the slash
product
the result (answer) of a multiplication problem
sum
quotient
A quotient is the answer, or result, to a division problem.
variable
a symbol, like a letter, that has a unknown value or one that changes
x-axis
horizontal axis (bottom) on a graph
y-axis
vertical axis (side; up and down) on a graph
Cartesian grid

Cartesian Grid is graph paper

- used to plot, or make a point, on a graph to show how far along, any increases or improvements have been made;

tells you your exact position on a graph using a horizontal axis (x-axis) and a vertical axis (y-axis).

right angle
an angle that measures exactly 90 degrees (like the corner of a square)
denominator
the number below (or under) the fraction line or to the right of the slash
range
The range of a set of numbers is the difference between the biggest and smallest number of the set
