Study Notes

Fractions

  • A fraction represents a part of a whole
  • Consists of a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number)
  • Equivalent fractions: fractions that have the same value, e.g. 1/2 = 2/4
  • Simplifying fractions: dividing both numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor (GCD)
  • Comparing fractions: comparing sizes by converting to equivalent fractions with the same denominator
  • Adding and subtracting fractions: requires common denominator, then add or subtract numerators
  • Multiplying fractions: multiply numerators and denominators separately
  • Dividing fractions: invert and multiply (i.e. flip the second fraction and multiply)

Decimals

  • A decimal is a way to represent a fraction with a denominator of 10, 100, 1000, etc.
  • Decimals can be converted to fractions and vice versa
  • Comparing decimals: compare digits from left to right
  • Rounding decimals: rounding to a certain number of decimal places
  • Operations with decimals: similar to fractions, but with decimal points

Percentages

  • A percentage is a fraction with a denominator of 100
  • Percent increase/decrease: finding the percentage change between two values
  • Percentage of a number: finding a percentage of a value
  • Calculating percentages: multiplying by a percentage as a decimal
  • Converting between fractions, decimals, and percentages

Geometry

  • Points: locations in space, represented by coordinates (x, y)
  • Lines: sets of points extending infinitely in two directions
  • Line segments: parts of lines with a fixed length
  • Angles: formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint
  • Types of angles: acute (< 90°), right (90°), obtuse (> 90°), straight (180°)
  • Properties of 2D shapes:
    • Number of sides and vertices
    • Types: quadrilaterals, triangles, polygons
    • Sum of interior angles

Ratios

  • A ratio is a comparison of two quantities
  • Writing ratios: using a colon (:) or as a fraction
  • Equivalent ratios: ratios that have the same value, e.g. 2:4 = 1:2
  • Simplifying ratios: dividing both numbers by their greatest common divisor (GCD)
  • Comparing ratios: comparing sizes by converting to equivalent ratios
  • Scaling ratios: multiplying or dividing both numbers by the same value
