Learners read definitions of the terminology associated with algebraic operations and then follow steps to use the fundamental laws of division to simplify algebraic expressions.

In this animated activity, learners read about the properties of a rectangle and its components. They then work practice problems to find the perimeter and area of rectangles.

In this animated activity, learners listen to instructions for simplifying a complex fraction by finding the least common denominator. This learning object requires a computer that is equipped with speakers.

Simplifying Algebraic Fractions that Contain Addition and/or Subtraction

In this interactive object, learners follow step-by-step instructions for reducing algebraic fractions, which contain addition and/or subtraction, to their simplest form. This activity has audio content.

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 part 2 of this series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine these numerical curiosities: The 189 Challenge; An Armstrong Number: What’s Special About 153? Is 495 Different or Indifferent? Is 6174 Different or Indifferent? It is always 618, and Beginning and Ending the Same.

An Algebraic Word Problem Involving Motion: Case 2

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?
