Fractions & Decimals Introduction

We know. Fractions and decimals may not sound exciting. But, we have great news: you’re already a pro. Yep, you've been using fractions and decimals for years and years. Remember splitting up a pizza equally between 6 people? Ever been half an hour late? Ever bought something for $2.50? That's all we're talking about here.

We will arm you with tricks and tools to take on any fraction or decimal problem that dares to cross your path. We will show you loads of examples along the way. And we will also try out word problems because those are the types of problems you’ll run into in your daily life. “Hey buddy, do you have change for a $1?”
