The Basic Math series covers basic math problems from addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, fractions and decimals to percentages, ratios and proportions, as well as exponents, powers, intro to geometry, graphing number theory and patterns, problem solving, statistics and simple equations.
Why are students not embarrassed when they say, "I can't do math"? You rarely hear from a high school student, that, "I can't do history", or "I can't do English", because they can't read. Why do we accept that some students just don't have the aptitude for math, while we assume that everyone has the aptitude to read?
Basic Math is taught by Murray Siegel of Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Siegel holds his doctorate in Mathematics Education, and has taught math since 1974. He has received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematic Teaching, is designated as a Master Teacher by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and was named by Kentucky Educational Television as the "Best Math Teacher in America".
In Dr. Siegel's eyes, if you can't "do math" you should be just as embarrassed as someone who cannot read. Now, there's no need to be embarrassed anymore. This series is the easiest way to become mathematically literate.
Introduction To Fractions:
Many students are frustrated by fractions. Basic Math introduces the fraction with concrete examples. The structure of the fraction-numerator and denominator-is related to the whole number. Fundamental fractional operations such as equivalent fractions, reducing, simplifying, and writing a mixed number as an improper fraction are introduced. These operations are vital if one is to successfully compute with fractional numbers.
You Will Learn:
1. To define the numerator of a fraction as its "digit" and the denominator as its "place value".
2. To compute equivalent fractions.
3. To reduce fractions to lowest terms.
4. To simplify an improper fraction to a mixed number.
5. To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction.
