1. What is Function Notation: Definition & Examples
After completing this lesson, you will be able to recognize function notation. You will also be able to evaluate functions correctly using function notation.
2. How to Use Exponential Notation
Exponential notation is a mathematical method for writing longer multiplication problems in a simplified manner. This lesson will define how to work with exponential notation and give some examples of how it is used.
3. Scientific Notation: Definition and Examples
Scientific notation is a special way of writing numbers so they are easier to work with. This lesson will define scientific notations and show some examples of how to convert numbers from standard notation to scientific notation and back.
4. How to Write Sets Using Set Builder Notation
Set builder notation allows the user to indicate specific items that are to be included within a set. In this lesson, we will learn how to write sets using set builder notation.
5. Translating Math Sentences to Inequalities
Watch this video lesson to learn how you can easily translate math sentences into inequalities. Once you know how to do this, solving word problems becomes that much easier.
6. Connections Between Math & Other Disciplines
As a math teacher, you don't have to just teach the math concepts. You can also show how these math concepts work in the real world. You can even make connections with the other classes your students are taking. Learn more in this lesson.
