Study Notes
Algebra Vocabulary

Solution: A value that satisfies an equation, making it true.

Linear Function: Defined by a degree of 1 and represented graphically as a straight line.

Quadratic Function: Characterized by a degree of 2, forming a parabolic shape on a graph.

Exponential Function: Features the variable x as an exponent, leading to rapid growth or decay in value.

Variable: An algebraic symbol (usually a letter) that signifies an unknown quantity in equations.

Domain: Represents the set of possible xvalues for a given relation or function.

Range: Encompasses the set of possible yvalues for a relation or function.

Term: Consists of products of numbers and variables, combined by addition or subtraction operations.

Slope: Expressed as the ratio of the vertical change (difference in yvalues) to the horizontal change (difference in xvalues), commonly referred to as "rise over run."

SlopeIntercept Form: The standard linear equation format represented as y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the yintercept.

Inequality: A mathematical expression indicating that two quantities are not equal, represented by symbols like > or <.

Exponential Decay: Expressed by the formula y = a(b)^x, indicating a decrease in value over time or as x increases, where a is the initial value and b is a base factor less than 1.
