Ch 18: MTTC Elementary Education: Whole Number Operations

About This Chapter

This chapter on whole number operations covers everything you'll need to know on the subject going into the MTTC Elementary Education exam, with simple-to-follow video lessons guiding you towards a more complete understanding of operations.

MTTC Elementary Education: Whole Number Operations - Chapter Summary

This chapter walks you through the steps of completing various forms of whole number operations in mathematics as you prepare for the MTTC Elementary Education exam. There are lessons on the definition of an exponent, the order of operations, number theory and more. Once you complete these lessons you should be able to:

  • Perform arithmetic with whole number
  • Understand arithmetic operations with fractions, decimals and integers
  • Explain the number properties of commutative, associative and distributive
  • Find the prime factorization of a number
  • Describe how to find the greatest common factor and the least common multiple

Each lesson caters to your personal learning preference by providing both a video and transcript of the content, both of which include features that make it easy to navigate through the key topics. The timeline allows you to skip around to the different main junctures of the videos, while the transcripts are littered with important terms bolded for easy review.

Arithmetic with Whole Numbers

1. 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.

Arithmetic Operations: Fractions, Decimals & Integers

2. Arithmetic Operations: Fractions, Decimals & Integers

In this lesson, we'll learn how to express numbers in integer, fraction, and decimal formats and how to do the four basic arithmetic operations in each of these formats.

Exponent: Definition & Properties

3. Exponent: Definition & Properties

An exponent tells you how many times to use a number in a multiplication problem. This lesson will define the properties of exponents and how to interpret them. There will also be a quiz at the end of the lesson.

What Is The Order of Operations in Math? - Definition & Examples

4. What Is The Order of Operations in Math? - Definition & Examples

The order of operations is the steps used to simplify any mathematical expression. In this video, learn how to solve problems using these steps and easy tricks to remember them.

Number Properties: Commutative, Associative & Distributive

5. Number Properties: Commutative, Associative & Distributive

We often find ourselves using real number properties when working on math problems. These properties come in a variety of forms, but in this lesson we'll focus on learning about the commutative, associative, and distributive properties.

How to Find the Prime Factorization of a Number

6. How to Find the Prime Factorization of a Number

The prime factorization of a number involves breaking that number down to its smallest parts. This lesson will show you two different ways to discover the prime factorization of any number.

How to Find the Greatest Common Factor

7. How to Find the Greatest Common Factor

If the factors of a number are the different numbers that you can multiply together to get that original number, then the greatest common factor of two numbers is just the biggest one that both have in common. See some examples of what I'm talking about here!

How to Find the Least Common Multiple

8. How to Find the Least Common Multiple

The least common multiple of two numbers is the smallest number that can be divided evenly by your two original numbers. See some examples of what I'm talking about here!

Number Theory: Divisibility & Division Algorithm

9. Number Theory: Divisibility & Division Algorithm

In this lesson, we'll define the division algorithm and divisibility. We'll see how these two concepts are related and use examples to explore some different divisibility rules to add to your math toolbox.
