This PDF introduces multiplying fractions and mixed numbers using both a visual and a mathematical approach.
It will help students to see how to sketch a visual model to find their product and verify that model with the algorithm for both multiplying fractions.
The PDF is designed to be used to introduce the topic or at the end of a unit to summarize the concepts. Ideally, the teacher can present the PDF one page at a time to display to the students and they can take notes, have a class discussion, or both. Pages can be printed for students to put into interactive notebooks as well.
Additionally, this file can be uploaded to Google Classroom as a Google Slides document and viewed on "Present" mode if you would like students to use this individually or even at home for front-loading or summarizing a lesson.
The 73 pages are designed to present the information a bit at a time. They are not 73 unique pages, but rather add information a piece at a time so that teachers can present the information without overwhelming the students with too much, too quickly.
Designed to align well with Carnegie Learning Middle School Math Solution: Course 1 - Module 1, Topic 2, Lesson 2
