Background Tutorials

Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.

Dividing decimals? Then this tutorial is a must see! Follow along and learn how you can divide decimals by rewriting the problem as a fraction and then using long division to solve. Check it out!

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).

You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!

Further Exploration

Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.
