This 2-hour self-paced course teaches students the foundation of fractions. Students will gain clarity on what a fraction is and how to recognize one. They will gain an understanding of key vocabulary terms related to fractions, explore visual representations of different shapes and sizes of fractions, and find common denominators/numerators with ease. Students will also explore equivalent fractions, compare and evaluate “same size” whole representation.
Go way beyond memorization of math facts up to 12. Learn how to multiply 2 figure numbers in different ways. Compare and evaluate the common core standard approach with Vedic Maths mental multiplication techniques. Vedic Math is a form of mental calculation designed to help you multiply in a simpler and faster way. After passing the assessments with a 95% score or higher, you should be well prepared to multiply problems such as 34 x 37 and 86 x 42 with ease as well as evaluating simple algebraic expressions.
When the only strategy students learn for elementary math is memorization then essentially they are tasked with memorizing over 100 isolated equations. That’s not good number sense because that often doesn’t stick especially with young learners. Students first need a deep understanding of number sense -- the ability to see spatial patterns and number relationships. This course will provide a refresher of the essential building blocks for strong number sense including: operations of digits within 10, spatial relations, number pair, doubling, halving, odds/ evens and more. This 2 hour course is a perfect complement to the 530 Scholars Comp10 card game.
