Roots

In high school and college algebra, you may have learned about roots, or rhizome, as some students called them. Roots are a basic concept in many sciences and engineering fields, and are a key ingredient in the formulation of many mathematical functions. In algebra, for instance, if a polynomial equation has been written using it as the x-shapes of the variables, then an x-intercept can be calculated by finding the roots of the polynomial. This is an extremely important subject for all students and should be taught to students early in their algebra lessons.

Roots are not just in nature; they occur in plants, animals, and humans as well. For example, consider the roots of a tree; when the lower branches reach the ground, they are called roots; the upper most branches are known as stem. In mathematics, a zero of any real-shaped, complex-valued, or in general vector-valued function f is a homogeneous member of the complex domain of f for which f(x} vanishes; this is the function f evaluates the value of x at x. The value of a function at any point is the value of the corresponding function at that point in the complex plane.

Students learn about roots by learning their properties, like volume and surface area, and their uses, such as when finding a solution for a mathematical problem involving integration, multiplication, division, and graphing. The topic also includes roots of expressions, such as sin, cos, tan, and bract, and their definition and uses. Understanding roots is essential to solving problems, and also to having clear and concise reasoning.
