Multiplying Fractions: Modeling With Fraction Bars.

Multiplying: Students will learn how to get the fractional part of a number, and the concept of multiplying a given number by a fraction. Fraction bars are included in some solutions, and the concept is presented in terms of the area of a rectangle. Again, if you look at the upper right side of the screen you will be able to find a pen and a highlighter in the MARKER TOOLS menu. Using them you may perform the fraction multiplications illustrated in the first few examples with fraction bars.
