Math can sometimes be a little tricky as there just seems so much to learn. In high school there are around 60 topics, from trigonometry to cumulative frequency and back again to quadratic formulas - that's a whole range of subjects that you need to know to be successful in your studies!
The good news is that there are common threads.. and a great understanding of math fractions, will help you to feel confident about working through some of the more challenging questions.
Questions that involve math fractions - adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing are very popular in exam papers. Whether you're studying GCSE, or SAT a great understanding of math fractions can really make a difference in your grade score.
If math was always about "arithmetic" you might not need this course. When you have been given an addition or multiplication math question it's usually fairly straightforward. The difficulty is when math is presented as a "word problem" and you need to work through to a final answer.
This course will help you to spend time understanding the wording, without worrying about the calculation. Math fractions - adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing - is a crash course in helping you to get the very best from your math studies:
- the two key skills you need, to work with math fractions
- how to use 'equivalence' for easy fraction calculation methods
- get rid of lots of big numbers that take too much time to work through
- find ways of really understanding the question... without worrying about the numbers
Math fractions - adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing - is ideal for all high school students wanting to improve their grade, parents helping with math homework, career changers or anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of math.
Each short lecture is easy to understand and presented using actual exam questions. There's a little bit of humour, a lot of whiteboard and a logical development through all of the topics:
- adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing math fractions
- easy to solve 'word problems' by using equivalent math fractions
- ratio, percentages and people selling raffle tickets
- some really hard stuff at the end - introducing 'algebraic math fractions' (a great way to really impress your kids)

- This course is for students at high school, adult learners, parents helping with homework, career changers and anyone wanting to work through to higher level maths. You'll need familiarity with times tables and perhaps a little bit of confidence - although we're going to increase that tenfold!
In this course we're going to work through a whole range of topics to encourage you to get the very best from your maths studies.
Packed with hints and tips, this course is based on more than 14 years of one to one tutoring. During that time I've enjoyed working with students wanting to improve grades, career changes, adult learners and teachers. Fractions is one of the key skills and, as you work through this course, your knowledge of maths will really improve.
By the end of the course you should be able to work confidently with fractions.. and more importantly, 'see' fractions in all sorts of different topics. From trigonometry to gradient and ratio, there's sure to be a fraction in there somewhere!
Hi and welcome to 'How to be good at maths - and great at fractions!'
This lecture introduces two key concepts:
- How to read a fraction - it's not just 'one quarter,' sometimes it's far better to read as ''one out of four.' Subtle difference? Yes, but it can make a lot of difference as the fractions get more complicated.
- Equivalence - one of the most useful ways of working with fractions. An ideal method of calculation, that just makes numbers easier.
In the next few lectures we'll be developing these ideas just a little more.
Using equivalent fractions is a key skill when dealing with fractions. It's used in many calculations including adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, as well as many (most) of the word problems towards the end of the course.
Try to practice using equivalent fractions as much as possible and, as you are working through high school maths, there should be lots of opportunities.
These type of questions are very common in high school maths.
I've used, I hope, a fairly easy method to understand. The main thing is not to get too tied up in knots, use a logical way of working, and write everything down. It's also good, if you can, to work down the page with each calculation below the previous.
There's basically two methods to subtract fractions:
THE HARD WAY... change everything to improper fractions, use a whole load of big numbers, multiply lots, divide too much, get confused and check everything all over again.
The EASY way.. use this neat little trick to make your calculations SOOO much easier.
