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.

Just keep tapping (or clicking) on the content to continue in the trail and 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.

These are named only for Addition and Multiplication
→  closure

→  inverse

»  Multiplication of Vector by Scalar is multiplication of real numbers
→  individual components on 3 axes are real numbers
→  the components are multiplied independently
→  properties of "multiplication of vector by scalar" is equivalently that of real-number addition

Starting on learning "understanding the applicable properties of multiplication of vector by scalar". ;;

For an arithmetic operation, usually, we learn the following properties

• closure,

• commutative,

• associative,

• distributive,

• Identity with respect to the operation

• Inverse with respect to the operation These properties are studied for addition and multiplication only.

When studying these properties, subtraction is considered to be inverse of addition, and division is considered to be inverse of multiplication.

If commutative property is to be applied for a-b, it has to be a + (-b) and commutative property of addition is applied.

If commutative property is to be applied for a-:b, it has to be a xx (1/b) and commutative property of multiplication is applied

If associative property is to be applied for (a-b)-c, it has to be [a+(-b)]+ (-c) and associative property of addition is applied.

If associative property is to be applied for (a-:b)-:c, it has to be [a xx (1/b)] xx (1/c) and associative property of multiplication is applied.

Apart from the 4 fundamental operations, for other arithmetic operations like modulus, these properties are not called using the standard names like closure property.

For example, take modulus of a number. Even though, it is established that modulus of a real number is a real number, it is not referred as closure property of modulus. The properties are exclusively studied for addition and multiplication.

The set of properties are studied for Addition and Multiplication.
