This tutorial provides a great real world application of math! You'll see how to use the scale on a house blueprint to find the scale factor. Then, see how to use the scale factor and a measurement from the blueprint to find the measurement on the actual house! Check out this tutorial and see the usefulness blueprints and scale factor!
Without a blueprint, it would be really hard to construct a building. Without a road map, you'd be lost! Scale drawings make it easy to see large things, like buildings and roads, on paper. Even a GPS uses scale drawings! Check out this tutorial to learn all about scale drawings.
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!
Have similar figures? Want to find the scale factor? Then check out this tutorial! You'll see how to use measurements from similar figures to create a ratio and find the scale factor.
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.
Fractions involving large numbers can be a handful, but sometimes these fractions can be reduced, taking those large numbers off your hands. This tutorial shows you how to reduce a fraction to its simplest form. Take a look!
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!
Looking at similar figures? Want to find a missing measurement on one of the figures? You could use a scale factor to solve! In this tutorial, learn how to create a ratio of corresponding sides with known length and use the ratio to find the scale factor. Then, write an equation using the scale factor to find your missing measurement!
This tutorial provides a great real world application of math. You'll see how to use the scale from a blueprint of a house to help find the actual height of the house. This tutorial shows you how to use a proportion to solve!
