Math Dictionary-M deals with the words starting with the letter M

    Magic square:

    Magic square is a square of order n is an arrangement of n² numbers, such that the sum of all n numbers in each row, column and diagonal is same. The constant for each row, column and diagonal is called as magic constant 'M' and expressed as

Major sector 

The major region between an arc and two radii joining the center to the end points of the circle is called a major sector.

More words on math dictionary-m as follows:


Mass of an object is the fundamental property of the object. It is measure of amount of matter in the object.


Mean is same as average. It is calculated by adding all the given series of numbers and divide the sum by the number of the given numbers.

Example: Find the mean of 2,3,5,6,5,7,7.

Mean = (2+3+5+6+5+7+7)/7 = 35/7 = 5


Median is the middle value of the given (arranged in either ascending or descending order) numbers.

Example: Find the median of 2,3,4,5,6,7

The numbers should be in ascending order.Here the given number is in ascending order.So we have to choose the middle value.

Minor sector: 

The minor region between an arc and two radii joining the center to the end points of the circle is called a minor sector.

More words on math dictionary-m as follows:

Mid point

The point that exactly in the middle of the number pattern.

Example: Find the midpoint of 2,4,13,10,0,6,8,1,9

In the above pattern the middle value is 0.So the midpoint is 0.


Mode is nothing but most repeated value in the given number pattern.

Example: Find the mode of 2,3,3,3,6,7,7,2,9

Here the most repeated value is 3.So we can decide 3 is the mode of the pattern.


An algebraic expression which is having single term is called the monomial.

Example: 3x,2y,2a


Multiplication is nothing but adding the same number over and over. This is also called repeated addition. This would be very useful for kids.Without memorizing this table we cannot do any multiplications problems. 

Quote on Mathematics

“Mathematics, without this we can do nothing in our life. Each and everything around us is math.

Math is not only solving problems and finding solutions and it is also doing many things in our day to day life. They are:

It subtracts sadness and adds happiness in our life.

It divides sorrow and multiplies forgiveness and love.

Some people would not be able accept that the subject Math is easy to understand. That is because; they are unable to realize how the life is complicated. The problems in the subject Math are easier to solve than the problems in our real life. When we people are able to solve all the problems in the complicated life, why can we not solve the simple math problems?

Many people think that the subject math is always complicated and it exists to make things from simple to complicate. But the real existence of the subject math is to make things from complicate to simple.”
