Enjoy free online math videos on these fraction topics: (Fraction videos, part 2, are on this page.) The videos are recorded in high-density (HD) and are viewable both here as well as at my Youtube channel. These videos are usable for students, teachers, and parents. To learn these topics yourself (if you're a student for example, or an adult needing a refresher)As lesson plans for teaching these topics. The videos match the lessons in my book Math Mammoth Fractions 1 (Blue Series book), or the lessons in chapter 5 of Grade 5-B (Light Blue series). Mixed numbers to fractions and vice versa I explain both the visual models and the shortcuts for converting mixed numbers to fractions or fractions to mixed numbers. To convert a mixed number to a fraction, divide the whole "pies" into pieces (the same kind of pieces as what the fractional part indicates), then figure out how many pieces you have.

The Story of Mathematics - A History of Mathematical Thought from Ancient Times to the Modern Day Phi 1.618 ø PHI: The Golden Ratio or Golden Section (In Nature, Art, Science and Religion) The Golden Section is a unique Ratio (or relationship between parts) that seems to be preferred by Nature as the best geometry for growth, energy conservation, elegance and has some fundamental relationships to the platonic solids and the Mandelbrot set. It was formally discovered by the Greeks and incorporated into their art and architecture, but it has been shown to occur even in prehistoric art, possibly as a function of Man's natural affinity for it's beauty. The rectangle at left has a vertical edge length of 1 the horizontal or width of the rectangle is 1.618 If we make a line inside and form a square (far left) it creates another 'golden rectangle' (at right) this subdivision continues inward in a spiral fashion tracing the form of a perfect PHI spiral seen in galaxies, seashells .... Even your hand, arm, ear, teeth, etc are in PHI Proportions!

Daniel Kopsas Daniel Kopsas (pronounced "Copsis") E-mail: Office Phone: (417) 447 - 8263 Twitter: I teach mathematics at Ozarks Technical Community College in Springfield, Missouri. I was inspired by Maria Andersen from Muskegon Community College to create this site and continue to pursue the use of technology in the mathematics classroom. For each of the courses in the sidebar to the left, I have built or I am currently building math video libraries. These libraries are constantly evolving and are not by any means perfect or completely error-free. If you are an instructor who would like to use some of my tutorials, and not necessarily send your students to this page to dig, there might be a simple solution. The tools I used to create the videos are a Wacom Bamboo tablet ($70), a Logitech USB headset ($35), and two free software packages: Jarnal (the handwriting software) and Jing or SnagIt (the screen recording software).

The Metric System The Metric System By the eighteenth century, dozens of different units of measurement were commonly used throughout the world. Length, for example, could be measured in feet, inches, miles, spans, cubits, hands, furlongs, palms, rods, chains, leagues, and more. The lack of common standards led to a lot of confusion and significant inefficiencies in trade between countries. The simplicity of the metric system stems from the fact that there is only one unit of measurement (or base unit) for each type of quantity measured (length, mass, etc.). To simplify things, very large and very small objects are expressed as multiples of ten of the base unit. Table 1: Common metric prefixes. The subunits are used when measuring very large or very small things. The metric system is a called a decimal-based system because it is based on multiples of ten. Because the metric system is based on multiples of ten, converting within the system is simple. Scientific notation Key Conceptstoggle-menu

The Secret to Teaching Math Facts: Number Bonds Below you will see why I think teaching math basics with number bonds is the best way for your homeschoolers to learn math. Over our last four years of homeschooling, I have used several different math curricula. Some I liked better the others, but they all had their own strengths and weaknesses. One of the strengths of one particular curriculum we use, Singapore Math, is their method of teaching basic math facts. Instead of teaching fact families by rote, Singapore illustrates fact families using number bonds. Now, I realize this is just my unprofessional opinion, but as a self-professed math geek, I truly believe number bonds are (likely) the best ways to teach math facts. Why? They're simple. How Number Bonds Work If you're not familiar with what number bonds are, allow me to illustrate. As in the example for addition on the left, the student is taught to recognize that the number 7 is made of 3 and 4. Number Bond Flashcards Teaching Algebraic Thinking

Adding Signed Numbers - Lesson 101 Video Adding Signed Numbers - Lesson 101 Hi, I’m Larry. This is the video from Lesson 101 on my website, adding signed numbers. This is one of the most important lessons on my site so make sure that you fully understand it and feel fully comfortable with it. I you have difficulty understanding this lesson you will have trouble with all the materials that follows because it builds up on this lesson especially when we get to Algebra we’re going to be using the skill again and again, so make sure that you don’t have any difficulty with it whatsoever. Up until now I’ve been working with adding positive numbers and we haven’t any trouble with that. Now, very often students say something like, “Wow! Now, I like to think of negative numbers as a debts or how much money I owe, so if I say negative three I’ll think of that as I owe $3.00. For this example I’d like to add 3 + -5. Here’s how I like to teach you. Okay, so the situation is I have $3.00 but I owe you $5.00.
