Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

User Guide

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

nub,

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

User Guide

nub is the simple explanation of the concept.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about.

User Guide

trek is the step by step exploration of the concept.

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step.

User Guide

jogger provides the complete mathematical definition of the concepts.

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen.

User Guide

exercise provides practice problems to become fluent in the concepts.

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge.

What is the fraction represented by the colored portion in the picture?

• 2/4
• 4/2

The answer is '2/4'

What is the fraction represented by the colored portion in the picture?

• 1/2
• 2/1

The answer is '1/2'

The picture shows three parts in three different colors.

•  The gray part shows the whole

•  The orange part shows the fraction 2/4

•  The purple part shows the fraction 1/2 The fraction 2/4 and 1/2 represent the same amount and the same number.

The numerator and denominator of one fraction is a multiple of numerator and denominator of another fraction respectively. Such fractions are called equivalent fractions.

What does the word 'equivalent' mean?

• enlarge and expand
• equal in value or amount

The answer is 'equal in value or amount'.

What are the fractions 3/4 and (12)/(16) called?

• Practice Saying the Answer

The answer is 'equivalent fractions'.

The picture shows four fractions , 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, and 4/8. These are equivalent fractions.

The fractions 2/4, 3/6, and 4/8 have numerator and denominator with common factors 2, 3 and 4 respectively.

Only the fraction 1/2 has no common factor between numerator and denominator. A fraction without a common factor between the numerator and the denominator is the simplest form of the equivalent fractions.

What does the word 'simplest' mean?

• without complexity; plain and elementary
• not often and remarkable

The answer is 'without complexity; plain and elementary'.

What is the form of fraction that has no common factor between numerator and denominator?

• Practice Saying the Answer

The answer is 'simplest form of a fraction'.

Equivalent Fraction: Two fractions p/q and l/m are equivalent if the numerators l, p and the denominators m, q have a common factor a. That is l = a xx p and m = a xx q. a is an integer. Note that, l/m and p/q specify the same amount with different place values.

Simplest Form of a fraction: A fraction p/q without a common factor between the numerator and the denominator is the simplest form of the equivalent fractions. That is, p != a xx q for any integer a.
