Chapter Summary

Jamie becomes a samurai and explains fractions by cutting many pies with her magic samurai sword. The four lessons in Fractions Explained are a subset of the lessons in chapter one of Algebra Explained. Because not all students are ready for algebra but many students struggle with fractions, at the request of our customers, we broke these four lessons out as a small mini-chapter to help those students. If you have purchased chapter one of Algebra Explained you already have these four lessons and you should not purchase Fractions Explained.
