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?
