Description

Do you have difficulties with fractions?  Does your child panic when faced with fractions? 

Here is the solution! 

The Complete Fractions Course teaches students how to handle fractions in a variety of settings and operations.  The goal is to help students overcome any fear they may have when faced with a fraction in mathematics.  

The lessons are designed to walk students step-by-step through each exercise and operation.  They provide ample opportunity to practice within the lectures in addition to the numerous quizzes.  

There are "scribble" lectures that show how to work-out problems with pencil and paper - revealing even more precisely the steps required.

Fractions are studied as independent units; however, they occur in geometry, algebra, ratios & proportion - and many other math arenas. Knowing what to do when faced with a fraction is essential at school. 

Of course, fractions are used on the job and at home as well, so this course is useful for anyone who wishes to know more about what fractions are and how to work with them.

Who is the target audience?
  • Any student who wishes to learn more about fractions and how to work with them effectively.
  • Adults who may be new to fractions or need a refresher to use them at home, in the workplace, or for new studies.
  • Grade school and high school students who will need to understand fractions for all future math units.
