Your child will first use various models to visualize how fraction multiplication works and then will learn the algorithm for fraction multiplication. She will extend her understanding by multiplying mixed numbers, solving problems involving fraction multiplication, and finding fractional area. For the final project, your child will assemble and play a game where players sort fraction multiplication products according to their size.
