Mathematics 101: Introducing Numbers

34 Lessons 5 hours 2 weeks

Even though counting is first taught at a young age, mastering mathematics, which is the study of numbers, requires constant attention. If it has been a while since you have studied math, it can be helpful to review basic topics. In this tutorial, we will focus on numbers used for counting as well as the four arithmetic operations—addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This tutorial is not so necessary for those who already have a solid foundation in mathematics. We will simply discuss some vocabulary that are useful throughout our study of mathematics.


Topics include a brief history of numbers and the study of mathematics, what whole numbers are as well as how to carry out arithmetic operations on whole numbers.
