Hi everyone, For the next few days or so, our focus in math will be multiplying fractions. King Kaird’s cousin named Luca, who lives in Genoa, Italy, learned this in his 5th grade class last year. I loved it so much, I asked him to record a video so I could share it with our kids! He emailed this to me this morning. Thanks Luca! You rock!
“Multiplying fractions, no big problem
Top times top over bottom times bottom
Dividing fractions is easy as pie
flip the second fraction then multiply,
if adding or subtracting is your aim,
the bottom numbers must be the same
change the bottom numbers using multiply or divide
but the same for the top must be applied!
And don’t forget to simplify
before it’s time to say…Goodbye!!”
