Area with Fraction Multiplication

Area with Fraction Multiplication

Concepts like area and multiplication are closely related. When kids make connections between mathematical concepts, they are more likely to find success by mapping new information onto the concepts they've already learned and mastered. Building or drawing models can help your child make those connections and understand difficult concepts on a concrete level. Practice using the area model with your child to support her understanding of multiplying fractions and mixed numbers.
