The free mathematics beginner course makes math learning simple in taking the mathematics student through Basic Arithmetic; a topic that deals with the fundamentals of Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Long Division.
Our step-by-step instructional videos on each facet of math learning, helps the student to easily understand the processes involved with the short test at the end of each topic consolidating each of the learning processes involved.
It is from here that the student progresses to learning pre-algebra: the critical foundation blocks that all math students need to be able to solve algebraic problems in their formative years of high school math and beyond.
Those foundation blocks include:
a) Learning about fractions and decimals. Here the student learns to add, subtract, multiply and divide both fractions and decimals. They learn how to reduce and simplify fractions while learning how to interpret mixed numbers.
b) Understanding place value and being able to use decimals in word problems is another key element to learning pre algebra.
c) The free mathematics beginner course includes the study of ratios, proportions and percentages. These math concepts teach the student about making mathematical comparisons both in school and in real life.
d) Math students are introduced to basic geometry where they will learn all of the shapes as well as 3D concepts of those shapes. Moving on, they learn basic concepts like area, perimeter, volume and surface area, as well as parallel and perpendicular lines and angles.
e) In pre-algebra, students are introduced to basic statistics that mostly include visuals like graphs, scatter plots, stem-and-leaf plots and histograms.
From here students learn concepts like solving simple equations containing variables, learning about properties like the distributive property, graphing simple equations and solving inequalities.
By the end of the Free Mathematics Beginner Course and through the regular use of the CMG Course Books and tutorials, it is envisaged that students will have become proficient in the basic skills Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Long Division.
Along with understanding Prime, composite numbers, fractions, decimals and a knowledge of the correct order of operations and how to write them students will possess confidence levels that will place them in good stead for the next stage of their math education.
