The Inverse Name Game

Christine Benson, Margaret Buerman 

September 2007, Volume 101, Issue 2, Page 108

Abstract:
The importance of emphasizing the concept of inverse. It addresses the different names we use for inverses and suggests ways to help students see the big picture. The author ties together the use of inverses in functions, arithmetic operations, reciprocal relationships, and makes a case for instruction of the inverse as a coherent whole.
