Adding or Subtracting Algebraic Fractions
By Jim Cihak
Learners follow step-by-step instructions for finding the lowest common denominator for a group of algebraic fractions and then enter their answers to three problems. Immediate feedback is provided. This activity has audio content.
In this animated object, learners use an algebraic formula to solve the following problem: An airplane travels a certain distance with the wind in the same amount of time that it takes to travel a shorter distance against the wind. Given a constant wind speed, what is the speed of the plane without a wind?
In this interactive object, part 3 in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine four numerical curiosities: What’s Special About 1089, Perfect Squares: 1089 and 9801, The Mathematical Significance of 1776, and The Calculator Number Game. The learner will also study six number patterns and look at one remarkable table. Immediate feedback is provided.
