Dictionaries Of Mice and Men

I had planned to do some work in our math dictionaries today. Ah well, the best laid plans of mice and men .... ;-)

Some of the terms we'll enter tomorrow are:
  • Term

  • Monomial

  • Binomial

  • Trinomial

  • Polynomial

  • Dividend

  • Divisor

  • Quotient

  • Remainder

  • Factor

There are some very good math dictionaries that can be found online. I found one here and another there. Which one do you think has a better definition of the word "factor"? ;-)

I like the definition from the kid's math dictionary because I just found it easier to understand although I like that the other website gave an example (2x3=6) because giving an example always helps. =)

I like the InterMath dictionary better than the kids one. If I didn't know what factor means (which would be astonishing because if I didn't know what factor means, that means something.. ;) It had a better explaination compared to the kids. But then, it's just my opinion, which is probably worth nothing. :p

John,

Your point of view is well articulated. You started your preference, gave a good reason including an example of how it helped you learn something. I definitely value your opinion. ;-)
