### Number Patterns

Number patterns are sort of like riddles, but with numbers instead of words. Learn how to solve them by discovering their secret rules.

### Geometric Patterns

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.

### Addition and Subtraction Equations

Have a problem, but not sure how to solve it? An equation can help.

### Determine the Missing Operation in an Equation

If your equation is missing its operation sign, you are in luck! There are only four choices — addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

### Creating Equations From Word Problems

Do word problems worry you? Not anymore. Once you can create and solve equations, word problems are a breeze.

### Function Tables

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.

### Ordered Pairs

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.

### Ratio

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.

### Rate

What is a rate? Well, how fast is the bus driver driving? That is a rate. How fast can you read a book? That is a rate, too. But when you compare them, you have to follow a few special rules.

### Proportions

When you have a ratio in a word problem, a proportion might be the easiest way to solve it. See what you think.

### Multiplication and Division Equations

Equations are a great way to organize the information in a word problem, making it easier to figure out the answer.
