## Math From Scratch 32: Real Numbers

June 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

This installment completes volume 2, and defines real numbers.

## Math From Scratch 31: Limits

May 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

In this installment, we introduce limits and use them to lead to the notion of complete sets. This is the last piece we need to define real numbers next month.

## Math From Scratch 30: Implications of an Impossible Number

April 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

This month we look at the implications of an impossible number constructed to examine the value of infinite processes. We look at limits next month and formally define the real numbers in June with the end of Math From Scratch: Volume 2. After that, Math From Scratch will return in September.

## Math From Scratch 29: Decimal Representation

March 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

This month we closely examine the decimal representation of numbers here.

## Math From Scratch 28: Rational Exponents

February 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

Our latest lesson covers exponents composed of rational numbers.

## Math From Scratch 27 – Infinite Sequences and Series

January 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches

In the second part of our look at sequences and series, we pay particular attention to the infinite variety.

## Math From Scratch 37: Solving Cubic Polynomials

November 1, 2013 by W. Blaine Dowler education, math, math from scratch Bureau 42 Teaches
