Students learn by doing. In this lesson, students find 1/2 of 1/2 using models. They are able to recall the representation of fractions in models and make the connections when finding 1/2 of 1/2 and other fractions as well. The lesson starts with the easier models to draw then develops into the algorithm they need to multiply any two fractions. They also are learning how to find 1/2 OF a number (not whole numbers yet)
Answer keys are included and models are created and ready to go.
