Multiplying and Dividing Fractions


Now that you have a well stocked tool kit of skills it is time to start computing with fractions. 

There are millions of videos on YouTube showing how to compute with fractions, but without a solid foundation, many of the videos are hard to follow, or don't help you understand why the rules they give make sense.  Without making sense, the rules are easily misapplied or forgotten. 

The worksheets in this unit and the next unit are designed to help you understand why many of the procedures make sense.  Hopefully, if the steps you follow to do a computation make sense, you won't have to memorize a bunch of rules or steps.

We will be starting with Multiplication and Division of Fractions in this unit. 

The two sections in this unit are:

Multiplying Fractions 
 Dividing Fractions
