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 139 videos and exercises.

(This courses uses many teaching videos from Khan Academy. The course was created using their resources before Khan Academy aligned with Common Core. We don’t solely use Khan Academy. There are other sites and many of our own materials as well. This course had a major update in 2022.)

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 on to 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. IT WILL START AT THE BEGINNING! The point is for you to fill any gaps in your learning and then progress forward with that solid foundation. At some point, you should probably be watching all of the videos. When you do, write the problems down and work through them with the teacher to help you stay focused and to make sure you can do it too. 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. You should be able to do five in a row correct before you move on. One suggestion is to set aside 30 minutes for math each day.

Addition and Subtraction with Positive and Negative Numbers

Lesson 1

Welcome to your first day of school! I wanted to give you one important reminder before you begin. Many of your lessons below have an internet link for you to click on. When you go to the different internet pages for your lessons, please DO NOT click on anything else on that page except what the directions tell you to. DO NOT click on any advertisements or games. DO NOT click on anything that takes you to a different website. Just stay focused on your lesson and then close that window and you should be right back here for the next lesson. Okay?

Factors and Multiples

Lesson 43

  1. Prime Numbers
  2. 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 or 0, 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. For example 69: 6 + 9 = 15. You can divide 15 by 3, so you can divide 69 by 3.

Lesson 44

  1. Recognizing Prime Numbers
  2. Complete the exercise.

Lesson 45

  1. Recognizing Divisibility

    • A number ending 0 or 5 is divisible by 5.
    • A number whose digits add to 9 are divisible by 3. 126 is divisible by 3 because 1 + 2 + 6 = 9 and 9 is divisible by 3. By the way, 126 is also divisible by 6! Why? Because any even number that you can divide evenly by 3 will automatically be divisible by 6.
