About the Course
I think the title of this class says it all:) This course will focus on a very important skill in math and in science - the understanding of parts of whole numbers. Topics will include understanding of fractions/decimals, ordering, mixed numbers, converting fractions to decimals and back, as well as math processes with fractions and decimals, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. This course is ideal for middle school students who have competency in math processes with whole numbers.
