Today we had to answer three questions and worked on different ways to answer them.
1: In words
2: Simple addition (we didn't do much on this it was however mentioned)
3: Number line
(Sorry my picture isn't as clear as I hoped)
For addition you take the second fraction (eg 4 x 1/2) and write it like this: 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2
For the number line you just take "hops on it" so if the question is 2 x 1/2 you would make two 1/2 "hops" (if that even makes any sense) Here is a video for a better understanding.
We also learned a bit about words for Division...
That's everything I could remember we did in class,
and what I at least know how to do.
Have a fabulous night. (:
