•Be sure to take advantage of the office hours and the AARC.

Topics for Exam III

•To understand and to be able to apply the definition a rational number (Section 5.1).

•To understand when two fractions are equivalent and to be able to simplify fractions
(Section 5.1).

•To understand that the rational numbers are ordered and can be placed into a one-to-
one correspondence with the natural numbers (Section 5.1).

•To understand that given any two rational numbers, we can find a rational number
between these two numbers (Section 5.1).

•To understand and to be able to add and subtract rational numbers (Section 5.2).

•To understand and be able to use fractions and mixed numbers (Section 5.2).

•To be able to estimate with rational numbers (Section 5.2).

•To understand and to be able to multiply and divide rational numbers (Section 5.3).

•To understand and be able to use fractions and mixed numbers (Section 5.3).

•To be able to estimate with rational numbers (Section 5.3).

•To understand and to be able to apply proportional reasoning . If a, b ≠ 0, c, and d≠ 0
are real numbers , thenif and only if ad = bc (Section 5.4).

•A quantity x is said to be proportional to a quantity y if y = kx. In this case, k is the
constant of proportionality (Section 5.4).
