This is an awesome lesson that introduces your 4th and 5th grade learners to the concept of multiplying fractions, or it can serve as a great review before you jump into dividing fractions (great review for 6th and 7th graders that struggle with multiplying fractions).
The engaging, easy-to-understand, 18-slide PowerPoint will walk learners through:
-Converting Fractions (improper to mixed and back)
-Multiplying proper fractions
-Multiplying mixed numbers
*and introduces “cross-cancelling” as a great simplifying method (KIDS REALLY LOVE THIS!)
The PowerPoint is loaded with practice problems for guided practice.
Please note! Overlapped text in “edit” mode will not appear overlapped in “play” mode.
-5 engaging and challenging practice pages including a fun decoder puzzle and real world problem solving
-Bonus pack of 3 differentiated multiplying fractions practice pages (basic to challenging) and 2 differentiated quizzes
-One page notes/anchor chart
-Answer Keys provided for all materials
