This is a resource that is intended for teachers to use to teach students the meaning of multiplication and division of positive and negative fractions. Rather than simply giving students the procedure for how to multiply and divide fractions, this resource allows students to see the meaning behind the process. The first four pages are not independent work, and should be led by a teacher. The last two pages can be given as independent work.
- Helps build understanding by relating to what students already know about multiplication and division.
- Helps build understanding by using visual models
- Helps build understanding by using real-world scenarios
- Improves students' critical thinking skills and number sense
