Equivalent Fractions The fractions 2/3, 4/6, and 6/9 are equivalent fractions. They name the same basic fraction 2/3.

You can re-name fractions by multiplying by the GIANT 1 method

Comparing Fractions Fractions can be compared using cross multiplication.

Which fraction is larger 5/9 or 4/5? Of course, 4/5!

Fraction BasicsAdd and Subtract: Denominators must be the same! (Video) (Student Video)Multiply: Top, Bottom, Simplify (Student Video) Divide: Just flip the second and Multiply (Student Video)

Decimals Estimate Estimate.. Estimate When placing decimal numbers in order, annex zeros (if needed)

Which is larger 11.19 or 11.9?

Annex zeros to give both decimals the same number of places after the decimal. 11.19 / 11.90. You can see that 11.90 is the larger!

Decimals Add / Subtract This one is easy!

Just line up the decimals! (Student Video)

Decimals - Multiply Just multiply as usual. Then, count the number of places to the right of both decimal numbers. Move the decimal this number of places to the left in your answer!

What is 3.2 x 0.1?32 x 1 = 32. Move the decimal 2 places to the left to equal 0.32(Student Video)

Decimals - DivideRemember, the divisor must become a whole number before dividing!

0.5Move the decimal in the divisor and the dividend 1 place to the right (Student Video)

Percent (%) of a NumberChange the % to a fraction & multiplyorChange the % to a decimal & multiply.

What is 10% of 200?1/10 x 200/1 = 20 or .10 x 200 = 20(Student Video)

Fractions to DecimalsTo change a fraction to a decimal, just divide as usual. Annex zeros and remember the decimal point in the answer!

Change 3/5 to a decimal 0.65(Student Video) (Student Video)

Percents to Fractions Remember, percent means per hundred

What is 33% as a fraction?33/100

Its that easy!

What is the volume of a container with length 10cm, width 2cm, and height 6cm?

Answer: 10cm x 2cm x 6cm = 120 cubic cm

Circumference of Circles

d or 2r What is the circumference of a tire with a diameter of 20 inches? Answer: Since pi = 3.14 and the diameter is 20 inches, then the circumference is 3.14 x 20 inches or 62.8 square inches!

Area of Circles (r squared)

What is the area of a pizza with a radius of 6 inches?

Answer: Since pi = 3.14 and the radius is 3cm, the area of this circle is 3.14 x 36 inches or 113.04 square cm.

Line Symmetry A figure has line symmetry if a single line or fold splits the shape into congruent halves.

a regular pentagon has 5 internal angles and 5 lines of symmetry.

Rotational SymmetryA figure has rotational symmetry if it can be rotated and have the figure match the original position

Ratios A ratio compares 2 numbers. Ratios can be written in the following ways:1 to 4 1:4

Holt Work Text

Ratios Cameron used 12 red beads and 60 white beads to make a necklace. What was the ratio of red to white beads to total beads?a.1:5 b. 1:6 c. 1:12 d. 1:4

Answer: There are 72 total beads and 12 are red. The ratio is 12/72, which can be simplified as 1/6 a 1:6 ratio

Proportions A proportion compares 2 different ratios and shows that they are equal.

We can determine if 8/12 = 2/3 is a proportion by cross multiplication. The two ratios make a proportion when the cross products are equal.
