Multiplying Fractions Tool
Use this tool to help students build conceptual understanding of what it means to multiply with fractions. Present contexts in the form of story problems, assist students in paraphrasing the problems, then use models to clearly represent the problems and the product.
The tool easily represents the use of multiplication to find the product for both “groups of” and “parts of” problems.
