Strategies

This exercise is medium to get accuracy badges because the first two types of problems can be subtle. The speed badges are medium because of the care needed to distinguish between the those first two types of problems.

  1. The answer to Meaning of expression can often be clear with without reading the division problem, as the situation described can lead to the answer by considering what someone would be interested in for the given problem.
  2. The Other order of fractions problems often concerned a container of objects with an almost ratio feel. Research has not continued to verify that this is always the case, but it should be completed soon.

Real-life Applications

  1. Fractions, decimals, and percents are used in many sports such as basketball to determine how many field goals the player has made over how many they attempted.
  2. Fractions are used in real life in many different ways, but they are most commonly used in the cooking, construction and science industries.
