Do fractions frighten you? Do you feel "bad at math" and wonder why others seem to understand it so easily? Are you afraid you won't be able to successfully teach your own children or help them with their homework?
If so, this is the course for you.
In a pressure-free environment, I'll talk you through the basics of working with fractions:
- What is a fraction, and why can't we just use decimals and our calculators?
- How do we multiply and divide fractions?
- How can we simplify a fraction?
- How can we find a common denominator among several fractions?
- How are fractions added to, and subtracted from, one another?
- What is a mixed numeral?
This course is geared specifically toward adults because that is my professional background, but it would also be appropriate for school-aged children. I will explain concepts using a visual approach that works particularly well for students who want to know why something works the way that it does.
It's time to finally conquer your fear.
- This course is designed for adults who need a refresher on how to work with fractions. It is particularly geared toward homeschool moms, but that is not a requirement. It would also be appropriate for school-aged children who need additional help in this area of math. This would not be an appropriate course for someone looking for in-depth mathematical theory.
Learn about my goals for the course, the general structure of the course, and what is expected from students.
Let's start at the very beginning. It's important to be on the same page, mathematically speaking.
Let's see what you've learned so far! I bet you'll perform better than you expect, but just in case you score less than 80%, I would suggest going over this section again. The concepts in this course build on one another, so it's important to have a strong foundation.
Simply enter your answer in the blank provided. To enter a fraction, just type it in like this: 1/2.
You have learned so much through this course! Let's put it all together here. As before, if you score below 80%, go back and review the lectures from your trouble spots, and give it another try. (Note: Unless explicitly instructed, enter answers as regular or improper fractions instead of mixed numerals. Be sure to fully simplify your answers.)
