Ch 3: Mathematical Models

Put our video lessons and quizzes to use in reviewing mathematical models typically used in grades 7-12 math. Learn to use a variety of models, real numbers and deductive reasoning to solve problems.

Mathematical Models - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, knowledgeable instructors will guide you through various geometric and symbolic models that are representative of algorithms, real numbers and operations. You can practice using deductive reasoning to solve algebra problems and using real numbers in solutions or models. As you progress through this chapter, instructors will also explain how problems with no obvious solutions can actually hold solutions within the real number system. Practice problems are included to give you valuable rehearsal in these skills before you try the quizzes. After you've worked your way to the end of this chapter, you should know how to accomplish the following:

• Use descriptive models as representations of real numbers, algorithms and operations
• Employ deductive reasoning to justify and simply
• Show how some problems have solutions in the real number system
• Complete practice problems using a variety of models

Our interesting video lessons are short and can make learning fun. The engaging lessons taught by experienced instructors are followed by quick, multiple-choice quizzes and lesson transcripts. If your quiz results show that more review on certain topics is needed, you can use the handy video tags to go back and find just the right spot. If you'd rather, you can view the video another time in its entirety. In some lessons, important terms are linked to additional text-only lessons that can offer even more clarification.
