Background Tutorials

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

Doing math with paper and pencil can come in real handy, so make sure you're comfortable multiplying decimals by hand. After all, you don't want the calculator to be a crutch!

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!
