A vector refers to any quantity that needs a magnitude and a direction in order to fully describe the quantity. In this lesson you will learn about the properties of vectors (magnitude and direction) and how to determine what quantities are vectors and what are not vectors. Definition of a Vector Quantity When someone tells... Learn More
What is meant by integration in mathematics? Integration, in mathematics, technique of finding a function g(x) the derivative of which, Dg(x), is equal to a given function f(x). This is indicated by the integral sign “∫,” as in ∫f(x), usually called the indefinite integral of the function. The symbol dx represents an infinitesimal displacement along... Learn More
All numbers, including whole numbers, integers, fractions and decimal numbers, can be written in the Numerator Denominator form. Rational number A rational number is a number that can be written in the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0. The denominator of a rational number can never be zero. e.g.... Learn More
In math (especially geometry) and science, you will often need to calculate the surface area, volume, or perimeter of a variety of shapes. Whether it’s a sphere or a circle, a rectangle or a cube, a pyramid or a triangle, each shape has specific formulas that you must follow to get the correct measurements. We’re going... Learn More
One of the major applications of derivatives is determination of the maximum and minimum values of a function. We know that the derivative provides the information about the gradient of the graph of a function which can be used to identify the points where the gradient is zero. These points are usually related to the... Learn More
