CSTEM 5103 Using Fraction as Number

Using Fraction as Number will focus on fractions as numbers in mathematics and in the world around us. This course focuses on exploring fraction as a continuous model representing units of measure and quantities, as opposed to a discrete model which is the comparison of two numbers (ratio). This course also focuses on developing an understanding of what a fraction is, how it fits into our base 10 number system, what it means, how to perform calculations with them, and how to interpret those calculations.
