Identity As opposed to a conditional statement that is sometimes true, an Identity will always be true.
The multiplicative identity is 1; the additive identity is zero.
Play_video
If-and-Only-If (Iff) A statement that shows a condition both necessary and sufficient for the assertion.
Play_video
If-Then Statement The classic biconditional statement is often phrased as an If-Then proposition.

Imaginary Number Imaginary Numbers exist, but we do not call them "real." Play_video
Incenter The center of a circle inscribed within a polygon.
For a triangle, it is the point of concurrence of the angle bisectors.
Play_video
Infinite In common language, not countable in any practical manner.
In math, having no bounds or boundary.
Play_video
Infinite Series Any series of terms whose progression has an unlimited (limitless) number of terms is an Infinite Series.
Play_video
Infinitesimal Infinitely small is Infinitesimal, so tiny that it occupies no space.
While in human terms anything really small (a molecule) is Infinitesimal, in math the term means approaching zero in size.
Play_video
Infinity That without bound; limitless.
Play_video
Initial Side of an Angle In standard position, the Initial Side of an Angle is the ray along the positive x-axis, from the origin.
Play_video
Inscribed Angle An angle inside a circle with its vertex on the circle is an Inscribed Angle.
Play_video
Inscribed Circle This term is the same as Incircle, a circle inscribed within a polygon.
Play_video
Interior Angle Any angle inside a geometric entity, or between geometric lines, is considered an Interior Angle.
Play_video
Interval The space or region between two defined values is an Interval.
Play_video
Invariant Constant.
Not changing.
Static.
That which does not vary.
Play_video
Inverse Cosecant Given a number, this function returns the angle whose cosecant is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Cosine Given a number, this function returns the angle whose cosine is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Cotangent Given a number, this function returns the angle whose cotangent is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Secant Given a number, this function returns the angle whose secant is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Sine Given a number, this function returns the angle whose sine is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Tangent Given a number, this function returns the angle whose tangent is the given number.
Play_video
Inverse Trigonometric Function Given a number, this function returns the angle whose trig function is the given number.
Play_video
Iota The ninth letter of the Greek alphabet, Iota means a very small amount.
Play_video
Isosceles Triangle A triangle with two congruent sides.
