How to Use This Course
Finally Conquer Fractions by Laura Baggett is designed to equip homeschool parents with the tools, confidence, and motivation needed for effectively teaching math to their children. This course focuses on the subject of fractions and provides a visual, step-by-step breakdown of what fractions are, how they work, and why they behave the way they do. Tips are also included for explaining fractions to your children.
Fractions can appear confusing and frightening to students. But if you weren’t a “math person” in school, fractions may also frighten you. My goal is to demystify the concept of fractions so that you can gain a firm understanding of what they are and how they work so you can then pass that understanding on to your students.
I know what it’s like to try to grab a few minutes of quiet in a house full of kids (you’ll notice my second video was filmed in my closet!). With that in mind, I’ve broken this class down into twenty-three bite-sized videos or handouts that you can move through at your own pace. The videos range from just two minutes in length to thirteen minutes, and the majority of the videos are under ten minutes long. The total length of the class is about an hour and a half. Please move through the class at your own pace, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via the email I share in the class or through CustomerService@theoldschoolhouse.com. Let’s get ready to finally conquer fractions!
