Multiplying Fractions Times Whole Numbers
Multiplying fractions by whole numbers is the focus of the math lesson presented here. There are three activities outlined in the lesson 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.
Multiplying Fractions by Fractions
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!
Fraction X - Adding Unlike Denominators
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!
Adding and Subtracting Fractions
With a pie graph and an infinite blackboard, this video shows how to add, subtract, and simplify fractions. Once he has established the rule, Sal throws the viewer a curve ball with a fraction subtraction problem that results in a negative number.
Fractions and Mixed Numbers
This series of math presentations by Monica Yuskaitis is outstanding! This installment teaches youngsters about fractions and mixed numbers. The graphics, examples, and text throughout this presentation are engaging and should help learners begin to understand the complex world of fractions.
Dividing Mixed Numbers and Fractions
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.
New! Partial Fraction Expansion 1
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.
Banking 3: Fractional Reserve Banking
With just 1000 pieces of fictional gold, Sal takes viewers through the process of fractional reserve banking. He explains how deposits made into a bank can be both assets and liabilities, and the role of having reserves. Additionally, he demonstrates the multiplier effect to show how the modern banking system is sustained.
Representing a Number as a Decimal, Percent, and Fraction, Part 2
There are two Khan Academy videos on representing numbers as decimals, percents, and fractions. This one shows students how to represent a fraction as a decimal and a percent. Sal demonstrates the process used to convert the fraction 7/8 into a decimal and then a percent. This presentation is very well done and would be great at an independent work station or as homework support.
Partial Fraction Expansion 2
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.
My Worksheet - Multiplying Fractions
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.
New! Listing Fractions in Increasing Size
Increase the depth of your class's fractional number sense with this number-ordering activity. Given four fractions, each with different numerators and denominators, young learners are asked to place them in order from smallest to largest. This challenging task encourages students to choose from three strategies for comparing fractions; using common denominators, common numerators, and benchmark fractions. Solutions will vary, so allow for a class discussion in which different approaches to solving the problem are shared.
Multiplying Fractions Times Whole Numbers and Fractions
Fifth graders make the connections using models between multiplying a fraction times a whole number and multiplying a fraction times a fraction. After completing three teacher-led activities, pupils access a website on their own to play the multiplication game. This resource would be perfect to use with your fifth graders who are learning how to perform this task.
New! Fractions and Rectangles
Visual models are excellent teaching tools when explaining equivalent fractions. Looking at a rectangle cut into twelfths, students first identify the shaded fraction, and then explain whether the fraction is equal to one-fourth. Consider assigning this as independent work and follow up with a discussion, allowing young mathematicians to share their explanations with the class. A great transition into a lesson on fractions in simplest form.
New! Math in English Skills VIII Exercise Book
For some learners, fractions are the bane of fifth- and sixth-grade existence. Use this fantastic packet to help those in remediation for mathematics. The packet contains 20 worksheets with answer keys, and covers adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. Each page contains fun pictures that make working on math a little friendlier.
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.
How Do You Multiply a Rational Expression by a Polynomial?
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.
How Do You Find a Rational Number Between Two Fractions?
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.
