Learners review the fundamental laws of algebra including the commutative law of addition, the commutative law of multiplication, the associative law of addition, the associative law of multiplication, and the distributive law. Examples are given.

An Algebraic Word Problem Involving Motion: Case 2

In this animated object, learners use an algebraic formula to solve the following problem: An airplane travels a certain distance with the wind in the same amount of time that it takes to travel a shorter distance against the wind. Given a constant wind speed, what is the speed of the plane without a wind?

The learner will understand the operation of the six fundamental logic gates and the inverter by using truth tables, Boolean Algebra equations, switch analogies, and written statements.

In this learning activity you'll explore the operation of a NAND gate using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

In this learning activity you'll describe the operation of a logic inverter using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

In this learning activity you'll review the operation of a NOR gate by using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

In this learning activity you'll explore how an Exclusive-OR gate operates by using a truth table, a Boolean Algebra equation, a switch analogy, and a written statement.

In this fourth part in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine three numerical curiosities: Be a Psychic by Predicting Birthdays, Predict a Card with Mind Reading, and Predict the Three Die Values Your Opponent Has Rolled. Learners will also study palindromic numbers and look at two alphametric puzzles.

In this screencast, learners examine the concept of gear ratios. The number of teeth, diameters, and velocity relationships are discussed and calculated using linear ratio equations.

In this interactive object, part 3 in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine four numerical curiosities: What’s Special About 1089, Perfect Squares: 1089 and 9801, The Mathematical Significance of 1776, and The Calculator Number Game. The learner will also study six number patterns and look at one remarkable table. Immediate feedback is provided.
