Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

Read in the blogs more about the unique learning experience at nubtrek.

User Guide

Welcome to nubtrek.

The content is presented in small-focused learning units to enable you to
think,
figure-out, &
learn.

User Guide

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

nub,

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

User Guide

nub is the simple explanation of the concept.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about.

User Guide

trek is the step by step exploration of the concept.

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step.

User Guide

jogger provides the complete mathematical definition of the concepts.

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen.

User Guide

exercise provides practice problems to become fluent in the concepts.

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge.

Which of the following is equivalent to (a+b)^3?

• (a+b)(a+b)^2
• a+b^3
• a^3+b^3

The answer is '(a+b)(a+b)^2'

(a+b)^3

= color(coral)((a+b))color(deepskyblue)((a+b)^2)

= color(coral)((a+b))color(deepskyblue)((a^2+2ab+b^2))

= color(coral)((a+b))color(deepskyblue)(a^2) + color(coral)((a+b))color(deepskyblue)(2ab)+ color(coral)((a+b))color(deepskyblue)(b^2)

= color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(a^2) + color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(a^2) + color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(2ab)+ color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(2ab)+ color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(b^2)+ color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(b^2)

= a^3+ 3a^2b + 3ab^2+b^3

Which of the following is equivalent to (a-b)^3?

• (a-b)(a-b)^2
• a-b^3
• a^3-b^3

The answer is '(a-b)(a-b)^2'

(a-b)^3

= color(coral)((a-b))color(deepskyblue)((a-b)^2)

= color(coral)((a-b))color(deepskyblue)((a^2-2ab+b^2))

= color(coral)((a-b))color(deepskyblue)(a^2) - color(coral)((a-b))color(deepskyblue)(2ab) + color(coral)((a-b))color(deepskyblue)(b^2)

= color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(a^2) - color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(a^2) - color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(2ab)-(- color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(2ab))+ color(coral)(a)color(deepskyblue)(b^2)- color(coral)(b)color(deepskyblue)(b^2)

= a^3 - 3a^2b +3a b^2 - b^3

Comparing the two identities

(a_1+b_2)^3 = a_1^2+3a_1^2b_1+3a_1 b_1^2 + b_1^3

(a_2-b_2)^3 = a_2^2-3a_1^2b_1+3a_1 b_1^2 - b_1^3

Substituting in the first identity b_1 =- b_2; the second identity is derived. Students may work this out to understand.

An identity for a^3+b^3 is derived.

Upon substituting a=-b, the expression becomes 0. So, a+b is a factor. The polynomial division principles are applied to arrive at. a^3+b^3=(a+b)(a^2-ab+b^2)

An identity for a^3-b^3 is derived.

Upon substituting a=b, the expression becomes 0. So, a-b is a factor. The polynomial division principles are applied to arrive at.
a^3-b^3=(a-b)(a^2+ab+b^2)

Note: The same can be derived using a^3+c^3 by substituting c=-b.

Comparing the two identities

a_1^3-b_1^3=(a_1-b_1)(a_1^2+a_1b_1+b_1^2)
a_2^3-b_2^3=(a_2-b_2)(a_2^2+a_2b_2+b_2^2)

Substituting in the first identity b_1 =- b_2; the second identity is derived. Students may work this out to understand.
