Use flashcards. Make multiplication cards for each number set. Although this may seem tedious, the process of making the cards will actually help you to learn them. Once you’ve made them, spend some time each day studying until you know them all. Focus on one number set at a time. When you go through the cards, put the ones you get wrong back into the pile so you see them multiple times.
To multiply fractions, first convert any mixed fractions to improper fractions. Then, multiply the numerators across to get the answer numerator. Do the same thing for the denominators, multiplying the two values across to get the answer fraction s denominator. Reduce, and if the answer is improper, turn it into a mixed fraction.
As well as a printed blank hundred square, another way to visualise decimals is to make a decimal stick. Get a cane or long stick, place with tape a number 1 to the right hand end, then a 0 to the left. Ask them now to place 0.5 in the middle, then together work out where all the other decimal points should go.
If you do not understand the common basics of algebra then you will literally be lost forever when it comes to this subject. Being lost in the early stages of algebra can be disastrous because there are many years of advanced algebra just knocking on your door. Once you become more confident and your comfort level increases, you can actually strengthen it by trying to apply simple algebraic applications to everyday life. You will soon find out that algebra is not quite as difficult as you may have once thought.
