If youâ€™re solving a math problem or word problem that contains units, you need to remember to include your units in your answer. By using dimensional analysis or unit analysis, you can include those units as you solve! Watch this tutorial and take a look at dimensional analysis!
Ratios are everywhere! The scale on a map or blueprint is a ratio. Ingredients sometimes need to be mixed using ratios such as the ratio of water to cement mix when making cement. Watch this tutorial to learn about ratios. Then think of some ratios you've encountered before!
Can you do 100 sit-ups in 2 minutes? That's a rate! Driving a car going 40 miles per hour? That's a unit rate! Watch this tutorial to learn about rate and unit rate (and the difference!).
Numerators and denominators are the key ingredients that make fractions, so if you want to work with fractions, you have to know what numerators and denominators are. Lucky for you, this tutorial will teach you some great tricks for remembering what numerators and denominators are all about.
Word problems are a great way to see math in action! In this tutorial, learn how to use the information given in a word problem to create a rate. Then, find and use a conversion factor to convert a unit in the rate. Take a look!
