What Is a Number Line?

1. What Is a Number Line?

A number line is a visual representation, or picture, of real numbers on a straight line. Learn how to identify points on a number line and then solve addition and subtraction problems using a number line.

What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

2. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

A graph, otherwise known as a Cartesian or XY plane, is a visual representation of data. Learn the different parts of a graph, including the X and Y axes, points and coordinate pairs, and quadrants.

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

3. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

Plotting points on a coordinate plane requires knowing the parts of a graph and how to identify points. Discover the components to plotting points and Descartes's conceptualization of the Cartesian coordinate plane in this lesson.

Graph Functions by Plotting Points

4. Graph Functions by Plotting Points

Graphing a function by plotting points allows for the visualization of all of the points that are used in an equation connect with one another. Learn how to find ordered pairs and also plot and connect points on a graph.

Concentric Circles: Definition & Examples

5. Concentric Circles: Definition & Examples

Concentric circles have the same midpoint and each circle lies within a larger circle, even if there are many of them in a set. Study the definition of concentric circles and examples of real-world concentric circles.

How to Find the Diameter of a Circle: Definition, Formula & Example

6. How to Find the Diameter of a Circle: Definition, Formula & Example

To find the diameter of a circle, multiply the circle's radius by two. Learn the definition of a diameter and a radius and review a detailed explanation of the formula used to find the diameter of a circle with examples.

Math Grids: Examples, Overview

7. Math Grids: Examples, Overview

A math grid, also known as a coordinate plane, is a set of intersecting lines that form small squares. Learn about the definition, kinds, and applications of math grids, as well as how they can be used in real-world situations.
