Step 1
Course Description: Students will work through basic operations with integers, fractions and decimals. Students will progress through the study of number properties as well proportions, rates, exponents and radicals.
DIRECTIONS: This is an ordered list of 137 videos and exercises (with links) to complete Khan Academy arithmetic and prealgebra. (This is the same course that it was before they aligned with Common Core. I was able to update Khan Academy’s links without changing any of the teaching. Where they have eliminated exercises, I just found alternatives on other sites.) You will start at the top of the page with Addition and Subtraction and work your way down in order. Make sure you read the directions every time. The first link on each line is to the video unless marked differently. You can move onto the exercise as soon as you know the material. That means you can do the exercise without watching the video if you already know how to do it. At some point, you should probably be watching all of the videos. Some days you will be doing more than one exercise. Some days you won’t make it through one whole exercise. You will stay on an exercise until you are proficient. According to Khan Academy that’s the first one correct or five correct in a row. If you get the first one correct and want more practice, you could reload the page. One suggestion is to set aside 20 – 30 minutes for math each day. When you stop in the middle of an exercise, it should remember how many problems you’ve done. Make sure you make an account and log in though! (If your child just works until the exercise is complete, there is no need to have an account and log in. It’s up to you how you want to do it.)

Factors and Multiples
 Prime Numbers Read my notes below.
 A prime number can’t be divided evenly (no remainder) by any number except itself and the number 1. Example: 7/7=1, 7/1=7 You can’t divide 7 evenly by any number other than itself and 1.
 If it is even, then you can divide it by 2.
 If it ends in 5, then you can divide it by 5.
 If you can add up the digits and divide the sum by 3 or 9, then you can divide the whole number by 3 or 9. Example 69: 6 + 9 = 15 You can divide 15 by 3 so you can divide 69 by 3.
