We continue from where we left off last month, and define the roots of some simple polynomials. You can find the latest chapter of Math From Scratch right here.
The latest chapter of Math From Scratch is here, and details the formal definition of polynomials.
Lesson 34 of “Math From Scratch” is available here, detailing the order of operations for mathematics and the methods of isolating variables.
There will no longer be summer breaks in Math From Scratch to ensure that the iTunes feed stays active. The latest entry can be found here, dealing with an important piece of understanding algebra which far too many public school curricula ignore almost completely.
This installment completes volume 2, and defines real numbers.
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.
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.
This month we closely examine the decimal representation of numbers here.
Our latest lesson covers exponents composed of rational numbers.
In the second part of our look at sequences and series, we pay particular attention to the infinite variety.
