### Mixed Up Monday (Review)!

Today we are going to review the concepts of multiplying fractions and using an area model to multiply whole numbers, as well as do an 'entrance card' for our next concept. In one of last assignments, when students needed to multiply two fractions together, many found a common denominator and added the fractions. This showed that it would be a great idea to rewatch the tutorial on multiplying fractions from a week or two ago, and have a bit more practice with the concept. Remember, when we give a final answer with fractions, we want it to be in its simplest form. As we learned in our first week of at home learning, we simplify a fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the biggest factor they have in common (Greatest Common Factor). Even though we learned to simplify when we were adding fractions, we really should simplify ANY fraction answer that needs it. In addition, this week we are going to be using the area model we used when multiplying whole numbers, but with fraction work. Because of this, there is a slide reviewing the area model. The final slide in the entrance card. Try your best on this, showing your work on how you might use your math skills and strategies to solve the problem. 5th Grade, Math 1 teacher likes this Compatible with: Chromebooks, computers, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets, Android phones, Kindle Fire
