Add To combine two or more quantities to find one quantity, called a total or a sum. [1] māmiwi-akihta
3 + 4
Addend Addends are numbers being added together. [8] māmiwi-akihtasona
Addition Mathematical operation of combining two or more numbers into a sum. [1] takohakihcikewin
Addition property of equality The property that states that if you add the same number to both sides of an equation, the sides remain equal (i.e., the equation continues to be true.) [8] nāmawi-akicikiwin

5 = 5

2 + 3 = 3 + 2 

Additive inverse An additive inverse is the opposite of a given number. [8] tēyakwac
 – 5 and + 5
Adjacent angles Adjacent angles are angles that are side by side and have a common vertex and ray. [8] (1) thikītakak (Woodland)
(2) wihkwehtakâw (Plain)
Algebra Algebra is the branch of mathematics concerning the study of the rules of operations and relations, and the constructions and concepts arising from them, including terms, polynomials, equations and algebraic structure. [8] algebra
Algebraic equation An algebraic equation is an equation that includes one or more variables. [8] algebra oci masinayikiwin
Algebraic expression An algebraic expression is a mathematical expression that consists of variables, numbers and operations. The value of this expression can change. algebra masinayikiwina
Algebraic numbers An algebraic number is a number that is a root of a non-zero polynomial in one variable with rational coefficients. [8] algebra akihcikewina
Angle An angle is a figure formed by two rays that have a common endpoint. [8] (1) wīhkwētakāw
(2) thikitākwaw (Woodland)
Angle measure The size of an angle is measured in degrees. [8] wīhkwētakāw kayispicak
Arc An arc is a part of a circle named by its endpoints. [8] (1) wāki-yaw
(2) wakāw (Wodland)
Area Area is defined as the number of square units that cover a closed figure. [8] askiy
Area of a circle The area of a circle is the number of square units inside that circle. [8] pihcāyihk wāwiyiyaw
A = πr2
Area of a polygon The area of a polygon is the number of square units inside that polygon. [8] ka-tipastawa pihcāyihk
Arithmetic The branch of mathematics is usually concerned with the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) of positive numbers. [8] akihtāsowēpinikēwin
Arithmetic expression An algebraic expression is a mathematical expression that consists of numbers and arithmetic operators (such as + , –, × , ÷ , roots, exponents, parentheses). akihtāsowēpinikēwina
[latex]5+7 \\ ( - 2 - 7)^3 + 5\times 3 \div  2 - \sqrt[5]{81}[/latex]
Arithmetic mean The arithmetic mean (or simply the mean) of a list of numbers is the sum of all of the list divided by the number of items in the list. [8] akihtāsowēpinikēwin tastawāyak
Arithmetic mean of [latex]3, 7, 32 = \frac {3+7+32}{3} = 14[/latex]
Arithmetic operations The four basic arithmetic operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. [8] akihtāsowēpinikēwin itihwina
Associative property Property of addition and multiplication that allows the numbers being added or multiplied to be
regrouped without changing the outcome of the operations. [3]
akihtāsowēpinikewin itwīwina
[latex](3 × 2) × 5 = 3 × (2 × 5) \\(1 + 4) + 2 = 1 + (4 + 2)[/latex]
Average The number obtained by dividing the sum of a set of numbers by the number of addends. [8] tastawāyak
Average of [latex]3, 7, 32 = \frac {3+7+32}{3} = 14[/latex]
Axes Axes are the horizontal number line (x-axis) and the vertical number line (y-axis) on the coordinate plane. Axes are also the lines at the side and bottom of a graph. [8] akask
