Contemporary
Math

These lessons
in mathematics include recognizing patterns, estimating, exploring
sets and portraying them. There are problems that use adding,
subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions and the use
of the order of operations. We continue to explore problems
involving different numeric systems such as Roman and binary
(base 2) numbers. As the quantities increase or decrease greatly,
we use scientific notation to handle values to large for the
modern calculator.

We broaden
our horizons with measuring exercises, creating graphs and Venn
diagrams. As the topic of contemporary math broadens, we will
examine real world applications on this page or point to other
web pages specifically on Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and
Calculus.
