Penguins may be cute and funny, but their numbers can tell us a lot about the health of our Earth and its oceans. (5:23)

Equivalent Fractions; Fractions in Real Life

Solving Equivalent Fraction Problems
Learning to visualize and combine fractions to make whole numbers can help you make sure you have enough materials to succeed with a building project. (3:25)

Converting between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Explore the Relationship among Fractions, Decimal Notation and Percentages
Fractions, decimals and percentages are all related. These three quick videos tell you how you can convert back and forth between them all, a useful addition to any mathematics toolbox. (4:34)

Ordering Fractions

Fractions, Mixed Numbers and Decimals on the Number Line
This interactive exercise will help you to understand ordering fractions by placing them on a number line. (N/A)

Understanding Fractions

In this video, you will see pictures represented as fractions using parts of a whole and parts of a group. (N/A)

Patterns and Relations

Patterns and Tables of Values

Name the Rule
Practise adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing on the fly to create a series of rules that win the game and save the day. (N/A)

Patterns and Expressions

Comparing Algorithms: Guess My Rule
Take the challenge. Using as few guesses as you can, try to put together a two-step rule and a pattern that will calculate the given answer. (N/A)
