PAINLESS

Fractions

Second Edition

Really. This isn't going to hurt at all . . .

You already know the most important thing about fractions: every fraction is a part of a whole number! From this point on, it gets even easier--just as long as you take it slowly, step by step. You'll learn how to find the lowest common denominator, then how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with fractions. Along the way, you'll find puns, puzzles, and "brain ticklers" that add fun to the way you learn. By the time you reach the end of this book, you'll wonder why you ever though fractions were difficult. Every problem presented in this book comes with complete explanations. You'll also find good advice to help you avoid pitfalls when you're calculating with fractions. New in this edition is a list of websites that you can visit to learn more about using fractions.

For Middle School and High School Students

Synopsis:

Taking a light-hearted approach to numbers and their parts, the author, shows how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions, demonstrates how to convert them into decimals and percentages, and presents puzzles and "brain ticklers" that students will enjoy solving.

Barron's popular Painless Series of study guides for middle school and high school students offer a lighthearted, often humorous approach to their subjects, transforming details that might once have seemed boring or difficult into a series of interesting and mentally challenging ideas. Most titles in the series feature many fun-to-solve "Brain Tickler" problems with answers at the end of each chapter.

Synopsis:

Just about everybody knows that fractions are parts of a whole number--but how many of us remember the difference between a numerator and a denominator? Or know quite what to do with them? Painless Fractions was written especially for middle-school students, but can be helpful to just about everybody. (Let's face it: we all make occasional mistakes with fractions.) The author takes a light-hearted approach to teaching fractions. She defines all terms, then demonstrates the correct methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions, and shows how to convert them into decimals. Puns, puzzles, and "brain ticklers" add an element of fun to the process of mastering fractions. There are answers to all questions, and plenty of good advice for avoiding pitfalls when calculating with fractions.
