A decimal number that has digits that do not go on forever.
a decimal fraction in which a figure or group of figures is repeated indefinitely
An Irrational Number is a real number that cannot be written as a simple fraction.
a number that produces a specified quantity when multiplied by itself.
the number that produces a given number when cubed
any expression containing a radical (√) symbol. Many people mistakenly call this a 'square root' symbol, and many times it is used to determine the square root of a number. However, it can also be used to describe a cube root, a fourth root or higher.
Scientific notation is a mathematical expression used to represent a decimal number between 1 and 10 multiplied by ten, so you can write large numbers using less digits. An example of scientific notation is when you write 4 x 10³ for 4,000.
The slope is a measure of the steepness of a line, or a section of a line, connecting two points. In this lesson, you will use several different formulas for slope and learn how those formulas relate to the steepness of a line.
In the equation of a straight line (when the equation is written as "y = mx + b"), the slope is the number "m" that is multiplied on the x, and "b" is the y-intercept, where the line crosses the y-axis.
the way of writing the equation of a line so that the slope (steepness) and y-intercept (where the line crosses the vertical y-axis) are immediately apparent. Often, this form is called y = mx + b form.
the equation of a straight line in the form y − y1 = m(x − x1) where m is the slope of the line and (x1, y1) are the coordinates of a given point on the line
a first-order equation involving two variables: its graph is a straight line in the Cartesian coordinate system. any equation such that the sum of two solutions is a solution, and a constant multiple of a solution is a solution. Compare linear operator.
terms whose variables (and their exponents such as the 2 in x2) are the same. In other words, terms that are "like" each other. Note: the coefficients (the numbers you multiply by, such as "5" in 5x) can be different.
a relationship or expression involving one or more variables
Mathematical equations called functions use input and (blank) replace the variables in an equation. The input is the known variable, while the blank is the solution. ).
is as a function that is not a linear function.
this can generally be expressed as a ratio between a change in one variable relative to a corresponding change in another; graphically, the rate of change is represented by the slope of a line.
A transformation in which a plane figure turns around a fixed center point.
A transformation in which a geometric figure is creating a mirror image.
term used in geometry to describe a function that moves an object a certain distance. The object is not altered in any other way. It is not rotated, reflected or re-sized
Coinciding exactly when superimposed
The act of expanding or the state of being expanded.
Two figures that have the same shape are said to be similar. When two figures are similar, the ratios of the lengths of their corresponding sides are equal. To determine if the triangles below are similar, compare their corresponding sides.
A line that cuts across two or more (usually parallel) lines. In the figure below, the line AB i
the angles that occupy the same relative position at each intersection where a straight line crosses two others. If the two lines are parallel, the... are equal.
the angle formed inside it by any two adjacent sides of the polygon. When two lines are cut by a third line (transversal), then the angles formed inside the lines are called ...
the angle between a side of a rectilinear figure and an adjacent side extended outward.
is a fundamental relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. It states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
A right circular cone and an oblique circular cone. A double cone (not shown infinitely extended) A cone is a three-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a flat base (frequently, though not necessarily, circular) to a point called the apex or vertex.
occurring continuously over a period of time.
Crossword puzzles have been published in newspapers and other publications since 1873. They consist of a grid of squares where the player aims to write words both horizontally and vertically.
Next to the crossword will be a series of questions or clues, which relate to the various rows or lines of boxes in the crossword. The player reads the question or clue, and tries to find a word that answers the question in the same amount of letters as there are boxes in the related crossword row or line.
Some of the words will share letters, so will need to match up with each other. The words can vary in length and complexity, as can the clues.
The fantastic thing about crosswords is, they are completely flexible for whatever age or reading level you need. You can use many words to create a complex crossword for adults, or just a couple of words for younger children.
Crosswords can use any word you like, big or small, so there are literally countless combinations that you can create for templates. It is easy to customise the template to the age or learning level of your students.
For the easiest crossword templates, WordMint is the way to go!
For a quick and easy pre-made template, simply search through WordMint’s existing 500,000+ templates. With so many to choose from, you’re bound to find the right one for you!
Once you’ve picked a theme, choose clues that match your students current difficulty level. For younger children, this may be as simple as a question of “What color is the sky?” with an answer of “blue”.
Crosswords are a great exercise for students' problem solving and cognitive abilities. Not only do they need to solve a clue and think of the correct answer, but they also have to consider all of the other words in the crossword to make sure the words fit together.
If this is your first time using a crossword with your students, you could create a crossword FAQ template for them to give them the basic instructions.
All of our templates can be exported into Microsoft Word to easily print, or you can save your work as a PDF to print for the entire class. Your puzzles get saved into your account for easy access and printing in the future, so you don’t need to worry about saving them at work or at home!
Crosswords are a fantastic resource for students learning a foreign language as they test their reading, comprehension and writing all at the same time. When learning a new language, this type of test using multiple different skills is great to solidify students' learning.
We have full support for crossword templates in languages such as Spanish, French and Japanese with diacritics including over 100,000 images, so you can create an entire crossword in your target language including all of the titles, and clues.
