Basic Mathematics

Mathematics is its own language made of Numbers and Symbols. We will explore different number types that are common in Basic Mathematics, such as Nominal Numbers and Cardinal Numbers. Equally important to understanding different number types is interpreting Common Symbols. You will learn how to recognize The Plus Minus Sign, and explain how it is used in numerical expressions.
