Number patterns are sort of like riddles, but with numbers instead of words. Learn how to solve them by discovering their secret rules.
Solving patterns is not always about numbers. Sometimes it is about shapes. And that can be tricky, but not if you know the right steps to the solution.
Have a problem, but not sure how to solve it? An equation can help.
If your equation is missing its operation sign, you are in luck! There are only four choices — addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
Do word problems worry you? Not anymore. Once you can create and solve equations, word problems are a breeze.
PLEASE follow the order of operations, and you will be master of all equations!
Got a really complex problem to solve? Some problems are best solved using a function table. We will show you how to set one up and find all the answers you need.
Like the X that marks the spot on a treasure map, an ordered pair can show you exactly where to go to find a spot on a grid.
If you need to compare two numbers — like how many games your team won this season compared to the total number played — a ratio might be the way to go.

When you have a ratio in a word problem, a proportion might be the easiest way to solve it. See what you think.
Equations are a great way to organize the information in a word problem, making it easier to figure out the answer.
