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.

Read in the blogs more about the unique learning experience at nubtrek.

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.

Starting on learning "Simplest form of a fraction". ;; In this page, the simplest form of equivalent fractions is explained and given a fraction, the procedure to find the simplest form is detailed.

The picture shows four fractions , 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, and 4/8. These are equivalent fractions. A fraction without a common factor between the numerator and the denominator is the simplest form of the equivalent fractions. The fraction 3/6 is given. what would be the approach to find the simplest form of the fraction?

• divide the numerator and denominator by any common factors
• multiply the numerator and denominator such that they are common multiple

The answer is 'divide the numerator and denominator by the highest common factor (HCF) or the greatest common divisor (GCD). '

What is the simplest form of 35/45?

• 9/9
• 7/9
• 5/5
• 9/7

The answer is '7/9'. The HCF of numerator and denominator is 5 which is canceled in both numerator and denominator. 35/45 = (7 xx 5)/(9 xx 5) = 7/9

The answer is 'divide the numerator and denominator by the highest common factor (HCF) or the greatest common divisor (GCD). '
A fraction without a common factor between the numerator and the denominator is the simplest form of the equivalent fractions.
Finding simplest form of a fraction: Given a fraction p by q, to find the simplest form of the fraction, find the highest common factor i such that p = l multiplied i and q = m multiplied i. Then the simplest form is l by m.
The answer is 7 by 9. The HCF of numerator and denominator is 5 which is canceled in both numerator and denominator. So the simplest form of 35 by 45 is 7 by 9.
