In this fractions worksheet, students solve multiplication problems with fractions. Students complete eighteen problems multiplying fractions. There is an answer sheet included.
In this fraction instructional activity, students complete a total of 36 problems, reducing answers to lowest terms. Answers follow both worksheets, 18 problems each.
Multiplying fractions by whole numbers is the focus of the math instructional activity presented here. There are three activities outlined in the instructional activity along with a nifty game learners play on the computer that reinforces their learning. These lessons are particularly good. They're well-written, the activities are educationally sound, and your class will enjoy the interactive computer game component.
Upper elementary schoolers investigate the concept of multiplying fractions with the help of a handout and a treat of brownies. They work on a worksheet for a short while and then progress to multiplying a chain of terms. Then the teacher reviews fractions using the brownies as visual aid and a treat.
A four-page resource walks learners through the basics of multiplying fractions. The handout is very visual with many diagrams in various colors. By the end of the lesson, learners are given an opportunity to multiply whole numbers with fractions, pairs of fractions, and fractions within real-world scenarios. In a bonus "Puzzle Corner," they can even attempt to figure out missing fractional factors. An awesome teaching tool!
Adding fractions with unlike denominators is a difficult process to master. This fine presentation does a terrific job of leading young math whizzes through the steps necessary to perform this calculation. The slides have clear graphics, easy-to-understand text, and many fine examples. The author of this PowerPoint consistently produces excellent math presentations. Highly recommended!
Sal needs to divide a fraction and then write it as a mixed number. In order to do this, he explains that he needs to write the whole number over 1 and then multiply by the reciprocal. He shows that multiplying across provides the same answer as when you "cancel out" a term.
This is the first of three videos on partial fraction expansion.  Sal goes over an example that first needs to be divided so that is a proper fraction. He then continues to demonstrate fraction decomposition. At home or in class, this offers a nice review of a real-life math scenario. 
Partial fraction expansion continues to be explored in this video. The example problem shown here is of higher degree polynomial then the one explored in the first Khan Academy video on this subject.
Third and fourth graders examine how to obtain equal fractions through the use of fraction strips and playing a fraction matching game. They observe a teacher-led demonstration and complete a fraction strip activity, complete examples, and play the fraction matching game in which they match fraction bars that have equal amounts of shading.
Multiply a rational expression and a polynomial. No problem, you can do it. Turn your polynomial into a fraction and multiply. You might need to factor your polynomials first to see if you can cancel out some terms, thereby reducing it before you have to multiply.
So do you really want to know how to find a rational number between two given fractions? The teacher explains how to average the two fractions to find a rational number between the two fractions. There are several steps involved in changing a mixed fraction to an improper fraction and also in finding the least common denominator.
Complex fractions? They might start out complex, but if you watch the instructor explain how to change it to a division problem, it won't be so complex anymore.
Middle schoolers identify proper, improper fractions, and mixed numbers.  They reduce fractions to their lowest terms. They add and subtract fractions with different denominators, and multiply and divide fractions, as well as decimal numbers and percents. This seven-page worksheet contains 28 problems with examples and detailed instructions.   
Upper elementary and middle schoolers solve 16 types of problems to include writing fractions to represent shaded portions, writing a mixed number to represent certain points on a number line, and changing equivalent mixed numbers to lowest terms. They also determine each fraction equations as products or quotients. Finally, pupils simplify a number of fraction equations and determine the reciprocal when necessary.
In this fractions worksheet, students complete fraction word problems based on recipes that they are given. Students complete 8 problems total.
Students compete for the best score in a variety of online activities related to fractions. Using the Web-based tool "Visual Fractions," they reinforce various fraction-related skills.
In this multiplying fractions learning exercise, students read about the process of multiplying fractions, examine some sample problems, and then solve 8 problems independently.
Help math learners discover how to multiply fractions and mixed numbers. They will explore visual examples of the operations. They also practice solving problems that their instructor models.
Students order fractions with unlike denominators using grid paper by identifying the least common denominator and finding fractional equivalents. They convert improper fractions to mixed numbers.
