Mathematic Tutorials An Introduction to Scientific Notation A quick review of writing very large and very small numbers using scientific notation. Mathematical Notation Learn the proper notation for representing numbers, sets, sums, and products. Introduction to Functions Learn the definition and properties of functions, how to perform mathematical operations on functions, and then practice what you have learned. Transformations Learn how functions are transformed and how to sketch the graph of a function by inspecting the equation. Then test your knowledge. Linear Functions Learn the definition of linear function, how to calculate the slope of a line, how to solve a linear equation, and how linear models are used in biology. Then practice what you have learned. Quadratic Functions Learn the definition of a quadratic function, what the graph of quadratic function looks like,and how to solve quadratic equations. Then test your knowledge with a problem set. Exponential Functions Learn the definitions of exponential functions, how they are graphically represented, and how to graph basic exponential functions and transformed exponential functions. Logarithmic Functions Learn the definitions of logarithmic functions and their properties, and how to graph them. Then practice what you have learned with exponential and logarithmic functions. Polynomials Learn the definition of a polynomial, how to perform polynomial division, and what a graph of a polynomial function looks like. Then review what you have learned with a problem set. Power Functions Learn the definition of a power function and how to graph one. Then test your knowledge with a problem set. Rational Functions Learn the definition of a rational function, what the graph of a rational function looks like, and how to find the asymptotes. Then complete the problem set. Trigonometric Functions Learn the definition of a trigonometric function, review some special angles, learn what the graphs of various trigonometric function look like, and see some trigonometric identities. Then test your knowledge with a problem set. Shodor Activities designed for either group or individual exploration into concepts from middle school mathematics. The activities are Java applets and as such require a java-capable browser. Powers of Ten A travel across the Universe. Changing scale by just a few powers of ten dramatically alters your perspective. Cyberchase A PBS website for kids of all ages with math games and web adventures.
