Acute triangle

Triangle with three acute angles; measures between 0 and 90 degrees


Area of complex shapes

What is the area of this shape?
one side = 4cm one side = 5 cm one side = 10 cm The Answer Did you get 35cm2? Make sure you follow these steps: To find the area, you need to divide the shape into a rectangle and a triangle: The area of the rectangle is 5 × 4 = 20cm2. The area of the triangle is The base of the triangle is calculated by subtracting the base of the rectangle (4cm) from the total length of the shape (10cm). So 10cm  4cm = 6cm. The total area is 20 + 15 = 35cm2. 

Area of irregular shapes

There is not a general formula for finding the area of irregular shaped because all irregular shapes aren’t the same. The best method is to break down the shape into recognizable shapes and find the area of each shape and then the sum of all shapes.

Displays the median, upper and lower quartiles, and the maximum and minimum values of the data 

Equiangular triangle

having all sides congruent. EX. A triangle with three congruent sides is called an equilateral triangle.


Exponential notation

a superscript (something printed above the usual line of printing) used to indicate the number of times the base is used as a factor (if a positive exponent) or divisor (if a negative exponent) or which root is to be taken. EX. In fractional exponents the denominator indicates which root must be taken.


exponents

A small number placed to the upperright of a number; shows the number of times the base number is multiplied by itself


Inequalities (number line)

Not equal in size, amount, or value


Isosceles triangle

Triangle with two equal sides and two equal angles


Linear equation

A linear equation is an algebraic equation of the form
y=ax+b involving only a constant and a firstorder (linear) term. 

Multistep equations

Equation: a sentence of equality written in symbols. Each equation has 3 parts: 2 expressions separated by an equal sign. EX. A formula is an example of an equation.
A multistep equation has more than one step. 

Obtuse triangle

Triangle with one obtuse angle; an obtuse angle measures between 90 and 180 degrees


opposite

Positive vs. negative; opposite numbers have the same numeral but have opposite signs


Percents (above 100, below 1)

a part of the whole expressed in hundredths, a rate


Pi (approximation i.e. 3.14, 22/7)

Ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter


Pi (approximation i.e. 3.14, 22/7)

Ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter


Regular polygon

A polygon with all sides equal and all angles equal are regular


Right triangle

Triangle with one right angle; a right angle measures 90 degrees


Scale factor

A ratio between two sets of measurements


Scalene triangle

Triangle in which all three sides are a different length


Scatter plots

A graphical diagram with points plotted to show a relationship between two variables


similarity

A graphical diagram with points plotted to show a relationship between two variables


Surface area

Total area of the surface of a threedimensional object, measured in square units
