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.
Multiplying and dividing numbers takes a good amount of thinking, and it's easy to make a mistake. But you can make sure that you're on the right track if you check whether the answer should be positive or negative. In this tutorial you'll see exactly how to tell if your answer will be positive or negative, even if you don't know the exact value of the answer. That way you'll always be able to check your answers!
There are lots of different kind of numbers that you should know about, and that includes rational numbers. Check out the tutorial!
Subtracting a positive is the same thing as adding a negative. Subtracting a negative is the same as adding a positive. Get a closer look with this tutorial!
Adding two negative numbers together? Just add the absolute value of each number together, put a negative sign in front, and you have your answer! See how it's done in this tutorial.
Going shopping can be tons of fun, but things can go sour when you get to the register and realize that the sales tax puts you over your budget. Always stay under budget by figuring out your total cost BEFORE you hit the check out. Watch this tutorial and learn how to calculate sales tax!
When you have constant speed, the same formula pops up over and over again, and that's the formula that connects distance, speed, and time. Make sure you know this formula, and if you want a refresher, check out the tutorial!
Ever heard of two things being directly proportional? Well, a good example is speed and distance. The bigger your speed, the farther you'll go over a given time period. So as one variable goes up, the other goes up too, and that's the idea of direct proportionality. But you can express direct proportionality using equations, and that's an important thing to do in algebra. See how to do that in the tutorial!
Did you know that many countries use Celsius to talk about temperature? When you have a temperature in Fahrenheit, it's helpful to know what that temperature is in Celsius. This tutorial shows you how to perform that conversion!
