Math Definitions - Letter I


Definition of Infinity

Definition of Infinity

Infinity is the idea that something goes on forever and ever.

It is sometimes used like a number, but should not be thought of in this way. Not all of the operations we can do with numbers work with infinity.

We use \(\infty\) as the symbol for infinity.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
