...and therefore, it is important to realize as what is it that is integrated or summed up. It is essentially the product of the dependent variable (y) and infinitesimally small increment in the independent variable or ?x which is continuously summed up. If we know from which point to which point this summation is to be done, then we get a definite answer and this integral is known as definite integral. **Mathematically** it is expressed by indicating the limits or boundaries of integration as shown below. This is a definite integral with integration being carried out between ‘a’ and ‘b’ (a < b) for y, which is a function of x. This definite integral gives many useful parameters like area under curve, area of a curved surface,...

...? **GEOMETRY** Introduction **Geometry** is a branch of measure **mathematics** that revolves in and around size, shape, relative figure’s position, together with properties of space. It is one of the oldest branches of **mathematics** that originated from the ancient Greek among the **mathematics** scientists. Initially, it dealt with areas, volumes, and lengths but in the 3 BC, **geometry** took a new path as a result of efforts from Mathematicians such as Euclid with his Euclidean **geometry**. He laid down the foundation of today's **geometry**; absolute **geometry** is type of **geometry** that has...

...Task Perception of **Mathematics** of **First** Year Perception of **mathematics** among in their **first** year of study greatly determines their success in the subject. Perception of the subject will determine the attitudes and the level of confidence the student approaches the subject. Most **first** year students perceive **mathematics** as numbers, formulas and rules and in order for one to understand the subject, he or she must recall facts and procedures used for manipulating numbers. In terms of gender, most girls think that **mathematics** is meant for bright boys and this attitude makes them approach the subject with laid-back minds, and...

...Fractal **Geometry** Fractal **geometry** is rather new **mathematical** theory which is completely different from the traditional concepts of Euclidean **Geometry**. Fractal **geometry** describes elf-similar or scale symmetric objects. It means that if to magnify these objects, their parts will bear an exact resemblance to the whole object. The word "fractal" was created by Benoit Mandelbrot and it means "to break", whereas the form of adjective "fractus" means "fragmentated". (Brandt 24)
It is a matter of fact that the word "fractal" has two definite meanings: the **first** meaning refer to colloquial use and the second is connected with...

...Instructions: Independent study. Choose a topic within algebra for independent study. Your topic should be **mathematics** that you have not studied before or that goes beyond what you have studied. For example, you may use this topic on"Nuclear salvation or nuclear folly" by R.E Lapp.
Do not think about developing a lesson plan, or to teach your topic to children. A little story of **mathematics** is welcome, but that should not be the main theme of your paper. The objective is to describe some **mathematics** that you have learned. Include a summary of why you selected your topic, and what you learned about it from each resource that you used. Also include some questions provoked by what you...

5. Determine which quadrant(**s**) is (are) relevant to this problem.
Quadrant I - since the slope of the linear graph is negative, QI would be relevant as both the +y-axis and +x-axis both would enclose the triangular figure with a downward slope. The path of the laser beam may coincide with the graph of the linear equation which from a point of observation in the third-story window makes an angle of depression from the horizontal to a point on the ground ‘x’ feet away from the building.

...**Geometry** **Geometry** is a branch of **mathematics** that deals or attempts to explain and describe the shape, size, or relative position of an object in space. The study of **geometry** dates back to the time of ancient Greek. The Euclidian **geometry** for example originated in the 6th century and it laid the foundation for modern **geometry**. Currently, the study has advanced to include other branches of **mathematics** such as number theory, algebra, and topology. Riemannian **geometry** for example is among the latest braches of **geometry**. Each of the above fields of specialization has a different approach to the study of **geometry** (Mlodinow, 2002). Indeed, a good mathematician will view the different branches of **geometry** as mere tools designed to enable... ...

...**Mathematics**: Open/Closing Credit The credit card will largely depend on the credit card holder purchasing behavior. Your current card charges 16.5% annually. Therefore, interest charges on a balance of $5,000 will be given by:
This is the interest charged on your current card, regardless of the duration. On the other hand Visa Student Card charges a lower annual percentage of 10.8% after a 6 month 0% interest period. On a balance of $5,000, the interest will be;
Obviously, the student card charges a lower interest compared to your current card and even offers a grace period of 6 months interest free which makes it an attractive option. However, since you usually have a large outstanding balance, chances of defaulting or exceeding...

...Step Draw a line AB that we will be divided into 3 (in this case) equal parts. From point A, draw a line segment at an angle to the given line, and about the same length. The exact length is not important.
Set the compasses on A, and set its width to a bit less than one third of the length of the new line.
Step the compasses along the line, marking off 3 arcs. Label the last one C.
With the compasses width set to CB, draw an arc from A just below it.
With the compasses width set to AC, draw an arc from B crossing the one drawn in step 4. This intersection is point D.
Draw a line from D to B.
Using the same compasses width as used to step along AC, step the compasses from D along DB making 3 new arcs across the line
