Chap. G

When students roll into one of my Pre-Algebra classes with the mindset that “math is difficult” or “I don’t like math”, very often the reason is fractions.  They’ve had difficulty with fractions for a while, fractions were the first math topic that was really hard for them, or they’ve spent so much time working with fractions since third grade they are just sick to death of them.

I have good news.

This chapter is called “Rational Numbers”, and it includes some work with fractions.  But now that we know some Algebra, we’ll get to examine fractions from a different perspective.  If fractions have always been hard for you, seeing them from an Algebraic perspective can help them to make more sense to you.  If you’re sick to death of them, then using fractions in an Algebraic setting will help increase the challenge for you.
