**Middle School Math Videos**

**Finding the Area of Composite Figures **** : ** Learn how to find the area of composite figures in this video. The height is provided in each example.The examples are appropriate for 6th and 7th grade Math.

**How is a histogram different than a bar graph**** **In this video you will learn the differences between a histogram and a bar graph. A bar graph uses categories and the columns do not touch. A histogram has numerical groups and the columns touch.

This video works several example problems that calculate the men and median of several data sets.

**How to create a frequency table** A frequency table organizes data into categories to show the frequency of each. You can think of frequency as how often something occurs.

- What percent of the class earned more than 12 A’s?

- What was the median number of A’s earned ?

- What was the high number of A’s earned by students?

**Analyzing Data-Looking at Center Spread and Shape** In this video you will learn about center spread and shape. Measure of center includes mean, median, and mode. Spread includes the range of a data set, and IQR. Finally shape includes looking for outliers,clusters,and gaps in the data.

**Integers** In this animated Middle School Math video you will learn the basics of integers. Integers are whole numbers that are not fractions,decimals, or percents.

**Percentage Change **What percent change is 73 to 86? In this video you will learn how to solve these percent change problems. The video covers both percent increase and percent decrease.

**Converting Decimals to Fractions:** Learn how to convert a decimal to a fraction using these three easy steps,create a fraction,the numerator will become the number to the right of the decimal point, and the denominator becomes the value of the last number. Finally, simply the fraction.

**Dividing with Decimals: **Learn how to divide with decimals. If the divisor is not a whole number, move the decimal point to right to make it a whole number, and move the decimal point of the dividend the same number of places.

Follow these simple rules for adding and subtracting integers.

If the signs are the same, add the two numbers and keep the sign of the two numbers.

If the signs are different, subtract the two numbers and keep the sign of the larger number.

If the problem is subtraction, change the subtraction to addition, and change the sign of the number after the subtraction sign, and then follow the addition rules.

**Adding and Subtracting Integers using Counters: **In this video counters are used to help people visualize the rules of addition and subtraction of integers. This video will really help if you struggle with adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers.

**Translating words into inequalities: ** Learn the symbols and words that are used in many word problems involving inequalities. Also, learn step by step directions for translating these keywords and setting up the inequality

When solving a two-step equation you perform two steps in order to solve the equation.

A two -step equation requires only variables on one side of the equal sign and numbers on the other side of the sign.
