What Is a Number Line?

1. What Is a Number Line?

A number line is a visual representation of all real numbers. In this lesson, we'll learn how to identify points on a number line. We'll also practice addition and subtraction, letting the number line do all the hard work.

Arithmetic with Whole Numbers

2. Arithmetic with Whole Numbers

There are four basic mathematical operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. These four operations are used in a wide range of everyday skills and are the fundamental blocks of arithmetic.

Standard & Nonstandard Units of Measurement: Concepts & Instruments

3. Standard & Nonstandard Units of Measurement: Concepts & Instruments

In this lesson, we'll define both standard and nonstandard units of measurement. We'll discuss each of these types of units and the measuring instruments we use for both through definition, explanation, and example.

Overview of the Basic Shapes in Geometry

4. Overview of the Basic Shapes in Geometry

Watch this video lesson to learn about some basic shapes in geometry. These are the shapes that you will come across most often in math. Watch as triangles, rectangles, pentagons, and circles come by.

Recognizing Patterns of Object & Sorting by Attributes

5. Recognizing Patterns of Object & Sorting by Attributes

Recognizing patterns of objects and sorting by their attributes opens the door to real world problem solving and reasoning skills. Patterns are used in Math at all skill levels, from the very basic sorting of colors and shapes to higher level STEM related concepts.

The Order of Real Numbers: Inequalities

6. The Order of Real Numbers: Inequalities

An inequality is an operation describing how one number can be compared to another. This lesson will describe and define inequalities and the symbols used to represent them. It will also give some examples on how to work with inequalities.

How to Construct Graphs from Data

7. How to Construct Graphs from Data

This video describes how to create a line graph and explains the four main parts that graphs need to contain: 1. previously collected data, 2. picture representations, 3. use of the correct graph type, and 4. labels. This lesson also covers dependent and independent variables.
