Learn how to do basic arithmetic with fractions (add, subtract, and multiply). Also learn about mixed numbers and equivalent fractions, and use this knowledge to compare fractions with unlike denominators.

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

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

Learn how to compare fractions with unlike denominators by drawing diagrams to represent each fraction.

Learn how to compare fractions with unlike denominators. Along the way, practice finding common denominators and simplifying fractions.

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 solve word problems by adding and subtracting 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 mixed numbers. This is an introductory tutorial, so the fractions you add and subtract have the same denominators.

Learn how to multiply unit fractions and whole numbers.

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 how to solve word problems by multiplying whole numbers and fractions.

Practice working with fractions that have denominators of 10 and 100. This practice prepares us for the next tutorial on decimal numbers.
