### Hi Debbie, regarding multiplication of fractions...

Hi Debbie
I would suggest to use area problems to practice muyltiplication, even with fractions. Yous ee, if they built a rectangular grid and calculate how many squares are inside, they'll figure out the area formula for rectangles. Then change the measurings of the sides, using fractions. For example: Create a rectangle that is 3 by 5 but, instead of dividing in 3, divide in 12, which means, each segment is 1/4. The other side in 16, for the same reason. Whenb multiplying, they will see how multiplication with fractions work.
Good luck !

I did love math in school but my friends struggled. I want to help my students make that connection to real world problems. I want them to enjoy doing math. I am trying to come up with as many hands-on activities for learning new concepts as I can. If you have any suggestions, especially multiplication, I would deeply appreciate it.
