Re: Maths!!!!An angle under 90 Degrees is called an acute but what would the angle be called if over 90 Degrees? please Admin i need to know. #4 20050124 10:52:36
Re: Maths!!!!an angle over 90 Degrees is simply called an "obtuse angle" "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20050124 11:01:49
Re: Maths!!!!Angles start at acute, then when they reach 90 degrees it is called a "right angle", more than 90 is obtuse, until 180 degrees which is called a "straight angle".

Re: Maths!!!!I absolutely hate maths. I thought i was getting better at it, but i proved myself wrong. What can i do to improve my maths skills? It is sooo hard. Please reply somebody!!! From Amy. Year 11. #8 20050128 07:48:14

Re: Maths!!!!Amy, just thought I'd give you a couple of tips on how to improve your maths. Maths is much more about doing than about reading. You could read a maths book for hours and not learn a thing. What you should do is find an example which you can understand and then do lots and lots of similar examples yourself until the method becomes extremely familiar. The biggest mistake that students make when studying maths is to give up once they encounter difficulties. They then avoid the subject in favour of other subjects and this only makes the problem worse. You have to put the time in to it and if you find yourself simply reading your maths book, take out a pencil and start working things out. If you find the problems difficult, go back to some simpler problems and work on these first. Good luck. If you get stuck on something, post a message and I'll see if I can help. By the way, I'm a maths teacher in Ireland. #10 20050218 04:36:21
Re: Maths!!!!i have an important maths test coming u soon and i'm really bad at fractions, decimals and percentages. Any tips Last edited by nicestar_05 (20050218 04:38:42) #11 20050218 12:14:55
Re: Maths!!!!Well, we do have some simple explanations of fractions starting at Equivalent Fractions  look for the links at the bottom of the page for lots more about fractions.

Re: Maths!!!!I have learnt that there is such thing as a reflex angle, which is over 180 degrees is this true? #13 20050221 23:05:03
Re: Maths!!!!Correct, amber, and we have some examples of reflex angles here "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #14 20050221 23:23:39
Re: Maths!!!!Thank you. I want to compliment you on this website, it is really helpful! Good job #17 20050222 19:12:07
Re: Maths!!!!Well, by using the "absolute value" function abs(), you can use: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #20 20050223 16:33:26
Re: Maths!!!!Great puzzle, j4tt, but one little problem .... I can't figure it out!! Is there a trick? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #22 20050223 19:35:33
Re: Maths!!!!its simple problem.. but the solution is a bit hard to figure out..... #23 20050224 09:15:55
Re: Maths!!!!Well done, j4tt, of course it is impossible! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #25 20050412 12:02:18
