Multiplying Fractions on a Geoboard (w/ free app!)
It might be an understatement to say that my life changed the day I realized that you can visually represent fractions. I had a rather tortured early fraction experience. (Tummy ache every day of fourth grade if that tells you anything!) What I wouldn't have given for someone to tell me that "fractions" doesn't equate "memorizing steps that mean absolutely nothing to the average fourth grade brain!"
In this little video I show you one thing that I wish someone--anyone--had shown me as a fourth grader. The Geoboard App I use is from The Math Learning Center and is free, both online and as a mobile app.
