I think that the ellipse is the most interesting of the four shapes to make up conic sections. We could
think about them as circles with two centers. These are called the foci. If both foci are in the same place,
we would get a circle. If they move furthe
There are several ways to solve a system of linear equations. I would have to rank the following four
methods, in order from greatest to least, as my top four:
1. Substitution
2. Elimination: Addition
3. Elimination: Subtraction
4. Graphing
The method of
In mathematics, a limit is the value that a function or sequence approaches as the input or index
approaches some value. A more common, everyday usage of a definition would be something along the
lines of the furthest boundary or point as to extent, amoun

Classifying Polynomials
A polynomial is classified according to
the number of terms and degree.
Examples:
4x 3 + 3y + 3z2
-12xy
