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.

Go to the activity


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.

Order of Operations

PLEASE follow the order of operations, and you will be master of all equations!

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.


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.


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.


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.
