Description

This site uses visual models to better understand what is actually happening when students multiply and divide fractions. Using area models -- one that superimposes squares that are partitioned into the appropriate number of regions, and shaded as needed -- students multiply, divide, and translate the processes to decimals. The lesson uses an interactive simulation that allows students to create their own area models and is embedded with problems throughout for students to solve.
