Learn what a fraction is and identify unit fractions.

Learn to identify fractions on a number line.

Learn how to find equivalent fractions visually and by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number.

In this tutorial, we'll practice understanding what quantities fractions actually represent and comparing those to each other.

Using our knowledge of equivalent fractions, let's rewrite fractions to have the same denominator.

See that a fraction can be broken up (or decomposed) into a bunch of other fractions.

Learn how to add and subtract fractions. This is an introductory tutorial, so the fractions you add and subtract have the same denominators.

Learn how to write improper fractions as mixed numbers (and mixed numbers as improper fractions).

Learn how to add and subtract fractions that have different denominators.

Learn how to add and subtract mixed numbers whose fractional parts have different denominators.

Practice solving word problems by adding and subtracting fractions.

Learn the art of multiplying whole numbers by fractions. See how 3 times 2/3 is the same as 6 times 1/3, which is the same as 6/3.

Learn to see multiplication as a way to grow (scale up) and shrink (scale down) other numbers.

Learn how to multiply mixed numbers.
