Multiplying Fractions Part 2a
This video is a continuation of multiplying fractions. In this video they show how to multiply the fractions in three different ways. In the first way they will take time and do each step slowly, then the second way do it faster and the third way is to do it fast. First way, multiplication of fractions, straight across the top and straight across the bottom, then to reduce the fraction they divide by a factor of each. In the second way they reduce (cross cancel) the fractions, then multiply acro

Multiplying Fractions Part 2b
This is a continuation of Part 2a, they start with the problem that was at the end of part 2a. They then go to additional problems, showing cross canceling right away. They do a problem with multiplying four fractions. These are problems are done step by step with good explanation.Â  Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.

Multiplying Fractions using Cross Cancellation
In this video they show to solve multiplication of fractions by cross canceling. They start with simple problems and do many different examples. Then they do addition of fractions with unlike denominators, they find the lowest common denominator, and apply this to solve the problem. Then they progress to a problem with four fractions. Then additional examples are done.Â  Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.

Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Students learn how to multiply mixed numbers and multiple sets of improper fractions. The first step for students is to make improper fractions, then to cross cancel, then multiplication is done. Another example is done for students. At the end of the video students are given problems to solve. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.

Reducing Fractions Part 2a
In this video they talk about reducing fractions to the lowest terms. The fractions they discuss are larger fractions, they require more than one step to be reduced to their lowest level. They also discuss what lowest terms are. They do many different examples.Â  Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.

Converting Improper Fraction to Mixed Number
Instructor uses a white board to demonstrate how to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers.  Students learn that a proper fraction is a fraction whose numerator is less than or equal to its denominator. For example, 3/7, 16/18, and 4/4 are proper fractions. And an improper fraction is a fraction whose numerator is greater than its denominator. For example, 5/2 and 10/3 are improper fractions. Note that an improper fraction can be rewritten as a mixed number. For example, 5/2 can be rew

Absolute Value & The Opposite of a Number
The first thing that is discussed in this video is the definition of absolute value. Absolute value actually represents distance and is always positive, the symbol of an absolute value is the two bars around the value. Distances are always positive that is why absolute values are always positive. They show absolute value using a number line. Many examples are given, when an equation is between the two bars it means the answer should be in absolute value terms. Then they discuss the opposite of a

Direct Proportion Using Hooke's Law
This is a lesson excerpt.  To see the whole video go to mindbites.com/lesson/918.  This video explains direct proportionality. Professor Burger uses a real-world example of a spring and Hooke's Law using a slinky. Hooke's law states that the distance a spring stretches varies directly to the force applied. If force, f, is directly proportional to distance, d, then d~f or d=kf. This equation allows us to find the constant, k, of how much the spring stretches when force is applied. After

Converting Between Decimals and Percents
Instructor uses a white board to demonstrate how to write percents as decimals and decimals as percents. For example, to write 82% as a decimal, think of 82% as 82/100, and remember that dividing by 100 moves the decimal point two places to the left, to get 0.82. So 82% can be written as the decimal 0.82. Since a percent can be written as a decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left, a decimal can be written as a percent by moving the decimal point two places to the right. For ex

Equivalent Fractions
Students learn that two fractions are equivalent if the fractions are the same when they are written in lowest terms. For example, 4/7 and 8/14 are equivalent fractions, because they are both equal to 4/7 when written in lowest terms. Students also learn to find fractions that are equivalent to a given fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator of the given fraction by the same number. For example, to find fractions that are equivalent to 1/8, multiply the numerator and denominator by
