399- Area: Building Relationships between Whole Number and Fraction Multiplication

Friday, April 17, 2015: 9:45 AM-11:00 AM
104 A/B (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Florence Glanfield


Come and learn how the area model, often used with the multiplication of whole numbers, can be used to develop an understanding of the multiplication of fractions (decimal, proper, mixed, and improper). We will use grid paper throughout the workshop to explore these relationships and to illustrate how this work leads to algebra.
