Background Tutorials

Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (-1)(-1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

A repeating decimal is a decimal that has a digit, or a block of digits, that repeat over and over and over again without ever ending. Did you know that all repeating decimals can be rewritten as fractions? To make these kinds of decimals easier to write, there's a special notation you can use! Learn about repeating decimals in this tutorial.

Further Exploration

Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram.

Ordering numbers from least to greatest? Are the numbers in different forms? To make comparing easier, convert all the numbers to decimals. Then, plot those decimals on a number line and compare them! This tutorial shows you how!
