This booklet works with concrete models to teach what it means to multiply a fraction by a fraction. Manipulatives are used and then drawings to help students understand this seemingly easy procedure. Subjects covered: Parts of Wholes: Review and Fractions as Parts of Wholes, Parts of Wholes Meet Iterative Addition, Multiplication, Commutative Property, Canceling, Multiplying Mixed Numbers
A constructivist approach where students learn through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models.
The Parent/Teacher Guide has instructions on how to teach the lessons, sample dialogues, games, and the Answer Key. The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages. We highly recommended that you order both for a complete package.
