Ratio, Proportion, & Percent
 Ratio & Proportion (and equations that are not proportions) I describe the meaning of ratio and proportion. I show a number of examples of proportions (a special type of equation), as well as several equations that are similar to proportions. I solve 14 equations in all. (You should be familiar with solving algebraic equations that do not contain fractions, and it is helpful if you already have some idea of how to clear an equation of fractions.) It may be helpful for you to print the "Sheets Used in Video" so you can take notes while watching the video. You might also pause the video and try to anticipate, or complete, the next step. The worksheets have three columns, each with four problems. Each worksheet reflects a similar varitey of problems from the video, but each column is somewhat different due to the wide variety of possible problems. Still, it is a good idea to work one column, checking your work as you go, and pausing before you begin the next column. Your steps may differ from the Answer Key, but the answers must match.

 Proportions with Mixed Numbers, Fractions, or Decimals (Tough Ones) I go through eight proportion problems, four with the variable in the numerator and four with the variable in the denominator; I advocate a slightly different approach based on this consideration. With many of these, I prefer to simplify, or "clean up" one side of the equation prior to isolating the variable or clearing of fractions. The practice worksheet, Proportions with Mixed Numbers, Fractions, or Decimals (Tough Ones) has three columns with a total of nine problems. Each column has a somewhat similar variety of problems; I suggest checking as you go and pausing or taking a break between columns, eventually attempting to proceed without looking at notes or examples. This helps to move the knowledge to your long-term memory.

 Using Proportions to Solve Word Problems I go through five word problems that can be solved using proportions. I mention when proportions can be used, and then show how to set up and solve the proportions. This builds on the previous two videos. Each worksheet has six problems in two coulmns of three. Each column has a similar variety of problems. I suggest checking your work as you go and pausing between columns. Try to tackle the last one or two columns without looking at examples or notes; this helps to develop your long-term memory.

 Percents, Decimals, & Fractions Emphasizing the meaning of the percent symbol, %, I describe how to remove the percent sign or put in the percent sign, without changing the value of what you are given. (In math you can always change the appearance, but never the value of what you are given.) With the last four examples, I show how to convert percentages that are mixed numbers or decimals, into fractions without the percent symbol. These are a bit more challenging. The Percents, Decimals, & Fractions worksheet is arranged in sections just like the video; you could pause the video at the end of each section in order to work the corresponding section of the worksheet, or you can watch the entire video and then tackle #1 through #20 on the worksheet.  Either way, by the time you have done #20, you have done four of each type of problem in the video. Working #21 through #34 takes you back over the same types of problems that you did in the first twenty. That said, try to work #21 through #34 without looking at notes or examples.
