Review lesson for 6th grade: fractions and decimals

In this video lesson of mine, we review how to write decimals as fractions, what to do when an addition or subtraction contains BOTH fractions and decimals, and how to place decimals & fractions on a number line.

The lesson suits best 6th grade math but is of course useful for other students (BIG or SMALL) too.

The 2nd part of this lesson has to do with a word problem concerning unit prices and a "bonus" problem of converting the fraction 1/7 into a decimal.

Hope they are of help! :)

CUTE 1st grade fractions exercise - different colors indeed!

This is what my son did on one of his Math Mammoth pages when studying FRACTIONS in 1st grade math... Look closely at the instruction for question 1d... color both halves, but different colors! It was so cute. :)

This worksheet page is found in my book Introduction to Fractions and also in Math Mammoth Grade 1 Complete Curriculum.

Addition facts within 10 - 1st grade math

Check out my videos on this page at my site! They present an organized and logical method for children to learn their addition facts within 10 using PATTERNS that arise from the number system itself.

Children LOVE patterns, and patterns are the essence of math — mathematics has even been defined as the "science of patterns".

In this method, we study sums with 5, sums with 6, sums with 7, and so on until sums with 10 (also called "number bonds"). These sums or number bonds are not studied in random order, but grouped by the SUM, or the "answer".

New book in the Blue Series: Data and Graphs

Math Mammoth Data and Graphs math book cover
A new kid on the block!

Math Mammoth Data and Graphs is a worktext that covers common statistical graphs and some related topics for grades 2-5.

It is a worktext, which means it includes both the "text" (instruction) and the "work" (exercises and problems).

The book starts with the easiest topics: reading and making bar graphs, pictograms, histograms, and various kinds of line graphs.  Toward the end of the book, we also study average (also called the mean) and mode, and how these two concepts relate to line and bar graphs.
