Video Summary

Barney's sinister green brother goes underwater in this video to chase submarines which are affixed with fractions that display simplified fractions and their unsimplified pair. Meanwhile, on land, numbers are being catapulted into the skyline where they fall down as parts of a fraction in its lowest term. Your students will love this cute little video about simplifying fractions!


A few extra things to consider if you have the time to read more:

★ These bundles are a unique teaching resource that will excite both your high-performing students and special needs learners.

★ Students with autism or dyslexia will find themselves retaining more math knowledge and for longer periods of time due to the multi-sensory approach that our videos take by appealing to both visual and auditory learners.

★ We all have experienced how a catchy tune can burrow deep into our memories and stay there for years. This is the power of music. We employ this unmatched power as a means to help your students on the path towards memorization & mastery.

Simplifying Fractions Song Lyrics


To convert two-fourths to simplest form:
write out all the factors of two and four.
The greatest common factor is two,
so divide them both by two.
Two-fourths equals one-half, and here’s what we do...


To convert to the simplest form,
we’ve gotta find the greatest common factor.
Then take that numerator and denominator
and divide them by that common factor.

To convert four-twelfths to simplest form:
Write out all the factors of twelve and four.
Four is the greatest common factor
So divide by four-fourths to see...
Four-twelfths equals one out of three.


“Simplest form” and “lowest terms” are synonyms
- which you may have heard are two different phrases or words
whose definitions are uniform.
Using a geometric model can help us learn
what’s happening when converting to simplest form.

A rectangle shows five-fifteenths - (so the) The GCF is 5,
which means no greater number can divide both fifteen and five.
So divide both by five; get one-third, its lowest terms.

It’s so boss being a nerd!!


About Me
I’m Mr. Hehn, and I’ve developed some excellent materials for my classroom throughout my 7 years as an elementary public school teacher that I’d love to share with you. I like to incorporate dancing, singing, and listening to music into my lessons. My project, NUMBEROCK, is a collection of music videos that teach/reinforce mathematical concepts that include posters and lesson plans to make learning math fun in a whole new way.

Aligned With:

TEKS Standard
Supporting Standard 5.3H
... represent and solve addition and subtraction of fractions with unequal denominators referring to the same whole using objects and pictorial models and properties of operations.

Common Core Standard ( CCSS )
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
