Booklet 6 - Multiplication

Designed for nine to eleven-year-old  students (fifth grade)

Prerequisite: Fractions:  Booklets 3, 4, and 5

This booklet:

• works with concrete models to teach what it means to multiply a fraction by a fraction.
• uses manipulatives and drawings to help students understand this seemingly easy procedure.  Easy to do, but not that easy to understand.  For example: why does the answer to a multiplication problem in fractions have an answer that is less than either fraction you started with?

Booklet 7 - Addition and Subtraction of Unlike Fractions

Designed for ten to twelve-year-old students (fifth and sixth grade)

Prerequisite: Booklets 3, 4, 5, and 6

This booklet:

• uses the concept of equivalent fractions to develop a common denominator that allows the addition and subtraction of unlike fractions first with manipulatives, and then with calculation.

Booklet 8 - Understanding Division

Designed for ten to twelve-year-old students (fifth and sixth grade)

Prerequisite: Booklets 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

This booklet:

• uses manipulatives and drawings to develop the concept of division with fractions.
• works on the concept of what the quotient means, how remainders are handled and how to use patterns to calculate the answers without having to use a drawing.
