Beyond rote learning of multiplication facts, learners enter the world of fractions, decimals, percentages and how they relate; find perimeter, area, standard & irregular shapes, money, time word problems applied to real life situations. This course is designed for learners with knowledge of multiplication & division facts, processes [2, 3 & 4-digit multiplication and division] adding, subtraction, multiplying and dividing. With that knowledge, learners in Fractions, Decimals, Percents & Beyond ~ Operations & Practical Application use that already acquired knowledge and step up to more complex mathematical operations. It's the goal of this course to advance learners' math skills and make the newly acquired skills applicable to their every day life. Each week, learners will practice and apply how to use fractions, decimals, percentage in all four operations and learn beginning geometry. ***NOTE: Learners needing a concentrated course in learning ways to master multiplication and division facts should enroll in "Mastering Multiplication Facts - A Fast and Easy Way to Learn Multiplication Facts [https://outschool.com/classes/mastering-multiplication-facts-a-fast-easy-way-to-learn-multiplication-facts-a5UUcjrw?refuid=ZvKivPMt] OR MATH Fact Families: Learn Multiplication & Division Facts the FUN Way [https://outschool.com/classes/math-fact-families-learn-multiplication-division-facts-the-fun-way-Q0QMyMnZ?refuid=ZvKivPMt]. This is where the "real world" application comes in to play. Learners practice word & money problems, explore fractions, decimals, percentages. Learners will focus on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Your learner will become fluent with computing these types of numbers and understanding the relationship between them. They will multiply using square models, multiply fractions and whole numbers using expanded form, and multiply fractions using number lines. When ready, learners will explore beginning geometry and perhaps a little algebra, too, and recognize that geometry is all around us. Learners can use this as an addition to their homeschool math curriculum, a remote learning supplement, in depth understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages or even as a review of these concepts. The end goal is for each learner to be able to apply these concepts to real life, answer word problems, solve real-life scenarios, draw and identify lines and angles, measurement conversions, applying their knowledge to understanding fractions, including equal (equivalent) fractions and ordering fractions, decimals, and beginning geometry. These skills will not only help them in their academic future but also in their daily lives. 📌 Course Prerequisites: ○ Learners should know how to add, subtract, multiply, divide 1, 2, and 3 digit numbers ○ Learners should understand place value ○ Learners should know their times tables [multiplication and division facts up to 144 memorized]. Learners will review facts 0-12 in this course ○ Learners should have completed Small Group Remedial Math Skills Class for Older Learners ○ Learners may have completed MATH Fact Families: Learn Multiplication & Division Facts the FUN Way [not required but highly recommended] ○ Learners may have completed MATH Fact Families Rock: A Multiplication & Division MATH Summer Camp [not required but highly recommended] ○ Learners may have completed Mastering Multiplication Facts - A Fast and Easy Way to Learn Multiplication Facts [not required but highly recommended] *** This course is the next course that mathematically follows "Small Group Remedial Math Skills Class for Older Learners."

Being an educator for forty + years, I've taught all subjects to students K-8 which included math classes at all levels. I've taught special needs students and designed full curriculum for K-12 students. In addition, I have taught students online for seven years. When I was a young student, I thought I didn't like math because it was hard for me. The truth was, I didn't understand the fundamentals of math, even though I could calculate and get the right answers. This is why I am so passionate about learners understanding the concept and relationship to numbers and operations, because once they understand that, learners will excel in Math and really begin to love it as I do now.
