ASSET Numerical Skills Test: Operations with Fractions - Chapter Summary
For the purpose of expanding your mathematics knowledge, this chapter reviews the steps to performing operations with fractions. The video lessons describe step-by-step processes for multiplying and dividing mixed numerals and identifying and dividing numerators by denominators. You'll also discover how to compare fractions and determine the largest or smallest as you get ready for the ASSET Numerical Skills Test. Studying these lessons canstrengthen your ability to:
- Add and subtract mixed numbers and like and unlike fractions
- Multiply and divide mixed numbers and fractions
- Subtract, add, divide and multiply numbers that have decimal notation
- Coordinate fractions in order to add and subtract them
- Solve estimation problems that have fractions
- Work with complex fractions
Complete with interesting graphics, detailed explanations and practice equations, the online video lessons review how to solve problems involving fractions. Take the cooresponding lesson quizzes to assess your knowledge and print out the results for future reference. The chapter also includes text transcripts and a Dashboard area through which you can ask questions of the instructors.
ASSET Numerical Skills Test: Operations with Fractions Chapter Objectives
Developed by ACT, Inc, the Numerical Skills assessment is one of three basic tests that evaluate your knowledge of key academic subjects. The ASSET Numerical Skills Test will determine how much information you've accumulated about decimals, fractions and whole numbers. There are 32 multiple-choice questions on the written test; you'll be given 25 minutes to complete the questions.
1. How to Add and Subtract Like Fractions and Mixed Numbers
When adding and subtracting fractions, you must be sure to have a common denominator. Once you have a common denominator, you just add or subtract your numerators and then your whole numbers. Learn how in this lesson.
2. How to Add and Subtract Unlike Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Simple fraction arithmetic gets a little more complicated when our denominators don't match. In this lesson, we'll learn how to add and subtract unlike fractions. Then, we'll do the same with mixed numbers.
3. Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Multiplying fractions is much more straightforward than adding, subtracting or dividing fractions. In this lesson, learn how it works. We'll also learn how to multiply mixed numbers.
4. Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Dividing fractions and mixed numbers? It sounds daunting, but it's not as tricky as it sounds. In this lesson, we'll learn how to divide fractions and mixed numbers.
5. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division with Decimal Notation
Performing operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division has some differences when there are decimals involved. This lesson will explain how to perform these operations all while keeping the decimals straight.
6. Practice with Fraction and Mixed Number Arithmetic
Adding whole numbers is one thing. But adding fractions and mixed numbers? That's not so simple. Or is it? In this lesson, we'll practice arithmetic with both fractions and mixed numbers.
7. Estimation Problems using Fractions
When working with fractions, estimating can save time and effort while getting you very close to the correct answer. In this lesson, we'll learn how to use estimation to quickly solve problems involving fractions.
8. Solving Problems using Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Fractions don't just live in math problems. They're all around us, helping us through our lives. In this lesson, we'll look at real scenarios where your ability to work with fractions can save the day.
9. How to Solve Complex Fractions
Did you know fractions can nest within fractions? In this lesson, we'll learn about complex fractions and look at two different methods for solving them.
