How to Learn Fractions

I know that fractions are hard to work with for so many people. This is one of the reasons I made this lens: to clearly explain what fractions are and how to work with them. The four operations with fractions, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, are easy to understand when properly explained.

**Question:**I'm a senior in high school and I generally do well in my math classes, but I think I may have a learning disability with basic arithmetic. I've done well in my pre-calculus course because I can grasp concepts just fine, but we're allowed a calculator for arithmetic so I haven't had to deal with it since middle school. Without a calculator I still need to count on my fingers and I can't subtract, add, multiply, or divide numbers in my head at all. Even on paper I make many mistakes because I mix up numbers and signs. I still don't really understand operations with fractions and percents. Also, in grade school we had to do "mad minute" sheets of simple math problems in one minute and I made as much progress in half a year as most kids in my class made in three weeks. I had to use military time for quite a while because I didn't understand how there could be two of each hour. My concern now is that I have to take the SATs and I keep making awful arithmetic mistakes on my practice tests. Here's an example: If 20 percent of 100 is equal to 500 percent of n, then n is equal to what number? I used 0.005 instead of 5 in the problem as 500 percent to get answer of 4000 instead of 4. I don't know why I can't manipulate numbers in these problems. Anyways, is this real or am I just really bad at math?

**Answers:**There is a learning disability called dyscalculia and it is in the same family as dyslexia except that instead of having trouble with reading one has trouble with numbers, and keeping them straight.

**Question:**I'm a 30 year old female. For a number of reasons (childhood trauma, ADHD, etc.), my social development has been very stunted--I'm a good 10 years behind everyone else my age, meaning that I develop/evolve social skills at least that many years behind my peers . I'm very unlike any person my age that I know; but, I'm not a shallow party girl like you might expect someone who is socially "younger" than others to be. I work in an admin job and am good at my work and take it seriously, dress professionally when I'm there (and even outside of work, often), but socially I'm pitiful because I simply feel "out of the loop" when it comes to navigating around social situations. People I meet think of me as ditzy, stupid, wierd, and don't want to hang out with me, even when I make an effort to include myself or include them in my activites (lunch, etc.) I have been working with a therapist on this, but he seems focused on me *accepting* this, when I want dearly to *change* it. He told me that there is no classes that you can take to develop social skills if you haven't already, you just have to "fall into them" and let nature take its course. I'm not comfortable with that; since I'm so socially awkward that just doing the "expose yourself to social situations" thing doesn't work and often leads to disaster and a feeling of defeat. Is there a way to learn social skills, in a formal setting?

**Answers:**I would see a therapist who specializes in assertiveness training. When you contact a potential therapist, ask them if they offer assertiveness training. If possible, have the therapist role-play with you so you can learn what to say and how to be comfortable interacting socially. Also, consider Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT changes the internal messages you give yourself about any situation, thought, etc. You can think and act more positively as a result. Go to a non-threatening environment, such as a bookstore, and notice how people interact with each other. Get a book, sit for awhile and observe people. You can learn alot by observation. Some of the SSRI's (Paxil, Prozac) have been shown to decrease social anxiety, but I would only use them as a last resort. Also, they need to be prescribed by a medical doctor. Read up on topics people in their 30's would be interested in. See a few movies, watch some tv shows popular with your age group. That way you have some knowledge of popular culture. Develop an interest or a hobby that you really enjoy. When you really enjoy something (like a sport, art, music, etc) you will find it easy to talk to others about it. Also, when you meet people with the same interests, you will find it easier to talk about your common sport, art, music, etc. Lastly, there is better living through alcohol, but I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. I was an extremely shy teenager, but once I had a few drinks and began talking to people, I realized they weren't as fearsome as I originally thought and my thoughts for conversations flowed easier. But like I said, not for everyone. I was in bars in my teens which as a parent sort of scares me now! Good luck on your personal journey.

**Question:**First of all I'm doing an A-level in mathematics right now so I know there's a lot more to maths than arithmetic. But anyway I still love it and am going to compete in the mental calculation world cup in 2008 or 2010 (depending on how good I get) (see: http://www.recordholders.org/en/events/worldcup/index.html). Right now (on average) it takes me 3.5 seconds to do a 2 by 2 in my head (e.g. 86 *67). This is nowhere near fast enough. I need to learn the 100 times tables to take the lead but have no idea how to. Any strategies will be welcome. No ExO11287, I know mental arithmetic has little to do with intelligence it's just a mind sport and i want to get one step ahead of my soon to be competitors. Just wanted some help from you guys because I can't remember how I learnt my 10 times tables.

**Answers:**You probably mean that you would like to know all the times tables up 100. A good starting point is to learn the tables of squares up to 100 X 100 This will mean that if you knew what , say 18 x 18 is ( i.e. 324), then you can work out what 17 X19 is (its one less than 324, or 323) also 16 X 20 (trivial i know but it is 324 minus 4) or 320 and 15 X 21 ( which = 324-9) or 315 The pattern is, if you have a product of two numbers that are either side of a know square product ,then because the algebra of this is :- (x-1)(x+1) is identical to (x^2-1) i.e expanding the brackets, x^2 -x +x -1 which is x^2 -1. and (x-2)(x+2) is x^2-4, and (x-3)(x+3) is X^2 -9 and so on. I would advise getting some books on number manipulation. I have many puzzle books and mental arithmatic books. If you would like to know some titles, please e mail me.

SkyingBlogger.com - for more videos on sum of n terms of the arithmetic sequence. This video take an example to find the sum of n terms of the arithmetic sequence where we need to also use nth term formula of arithmetic sequences. In this problems we need to first find total numbers of three digit numbers which are divisible 7. To find total three digit numbers divisible by 7, we have to use the Nth term formula here.. But before that we have to find the first three digit number divisible by 7 and then last three digit number divisible 7. then we will get an arithmetic sequence. By applying nth term formula of arithmetic sequence we can easily get the number of terms or total three digit number divisible by 7. I hope you understand how to find the sum of all three digit numbers which are divisible by 7 using sum of n terms and nth term formula. Finding Total 3 digit Numbers Divisible by 7 Using Nth term Formula of Arithmetic Sequences In this video lesson we are going to find the total 3 digit numbers divisible by 7. Wow 1 It looks nice. Well to find the total number of 3 digit number divisible 7 , there are many methods but here will learn the method of Arithmetic Sequence. We will make an sequence of 3 digit number which are divisible by three then by the application of arithmetic properties we will solve the problem. Here is the video lesson of it.
