PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This a great hands on lesson to teach students to multiply fractions with area models. Working hands-on with area models really allows students to understand the concept of multiplying with fractions.

Print the fraction models (there is a color AND black & white option) on overhead transparency film and cut out the squares.
I make one set of fraction transparencies for each pair of students. (Keep them in plastic zip-top bags to stay organized!)
I model how to put the models together with this great online interactive and under my document camera. they need to use transparency squares to solve the equations pages. They draw the models they used and created in the squares using the transparency models as a guide.

There is one page of fraction models, in color and black and white, to print onto transparency film. The clear film makes it easy and fun for students to overlap the models to use the area model to multiply fractions.

The student pages are black and white for economical printing. You may choose to print on color card stock for a punch of color. Laminate the cards for durability and you're ready to go!
