Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the Fraction Slayer breaks down the concept of fractions, explaining why they are important and how they are used in everyday life. From money and cooking to sports and science, fractions are all around us. The lesson also includes detailed instruction on how to perform fraction operations and conversions using a TI-84+ Graphing Calculator. Students are encouraged to print out the accompanying notes and work through the video exercises for a fully interactive and engaging learning experience.

Lesson Description:

An informal introduction to why we need to learn about fractions.

Lesson 6 consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on all about fractions. This lesson is different from the previous ones in that the use of printed Notes is integrated with the Video (other Notes may be used independently of the videos). This lesson is VERY detailed and covers the necessary areas to help students review the many aspects of fractions and fraction conversions. I also show you how to perform all the many different fraction operations and conversions using the TI-84+ Graphing Calculator.
