Hello! You have reached the “Information Pages Worth Keeping or Developing” page. This page is a list posts that have explained things well and are good to look back at for future posts. This page is also meant for different pages on the website that are “worth developing” or can be elaborated on.
I redid this to try to make it easier to access/refer back to. Here is the original post by Melody: http://web2.0calc.com/questions/information-pages-worth-keeping-or-developing
This page is broken down into different sections as to try to make it easier to refer back to. For the most part, the topics are organized by “grade levels” of mathematics (like Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, etc.)
Remember, good manners are always important and very much appreciated!
Without further a due, let’s dive right in!
Various calculators and math resources:
Calculator for linear regression (suggested by Alan)
Make a graph! (recommended by Melody and CPhill)
Reinout discovered how to use the web2 calc for different thinga in physics like electron mass/atomic mass. Read about it here:
Reinout_g says he likes this site for their variety of explanations of various topics, (everything from percentages to pythagoras’ theorem!) and for the fact that you don’t usually need any pre-requiring knowledge. He also likes how they have clear explanations that are never “dry.” Melody also recommends this page, and I have to agree with them, this is a nice math resource.
Conversion web page:
Basic math concepts:
The good ol' times tables:
Postive and negative numbers:
Addition and subtraction of direct numbers:
Fun with factorials! (A YouTube video Melody found)
Estimating square roots
Square root in answer verses introduced square root.
OEIS (On-line encyclopedia of Integer sequences) Can’t find a pattern between a few numbers? Try out this website!
Quadratic equation links:
Solving a more difficult algebra problem:
A page explaining how to solve inequalities:
Youtube clip explaining how to factor trinomials using the grouping method:
Graphing log functions on the web2 calculator:
Negative indices and negative exponets (a great explanation by Melody)
Understanding conics, focus, directric, etc, with interactive graphing:
Surface area of a cylinder:
A YouTube clip that shows measuring volume using displacement:
Some discussions/explainations of pi: (Mmmm, pie……)
Probability and statistics:
Inverse trig on the web2 calculator:
Graphing complicated trig functions:
What time is it around the globe?
Copy and paste web addresses.
How do I upload an image?
Searching with keywords:
LaTex (a format that can be used when answering questions on this forum) This can be confusing when you first look at it. Here’s some posts on how to use LaTex:
Some theories on why math is so hard:
I almost forogt, Melody sugested that each topic be a "reply" to the original post, I will probably do this on the final draft
This looks great.
I've decided that this needs to go into the Sticky Notes (to replace the other one)
If it is not there no-one will use it and that defeats the whole purpose.
I will comment on it as I use it.
Please, NinjaDevo and I want your feed back.
