A number without a variable. Ex.) 5 is a constant, 5x is not.

Math uses letters to indicate that specific numbers are not known or as an abbreviation for certain constant.

It is a number that comes up in math and is independent of the physical measurement. Some examples that are well know are e and pi. As the name implies, the numbers do not change---they are constant. Usually math constants are real and not imaginary numbers.

It means something that doesn't change, like a number.

It means that the first derivative is a constant. The derivative may be with regard to time or any other variable.
