It all starts here with addition! Learning addition is the first step on your way to subtraction, and makes up the foundation of all of the strategies used to teach multiplication. These math fact timed tests and multiple digit addition problems should make up the core of your strategies for teaching addition concepts, but when you are ready for alternative strategies:
- Picture Math Addition.
- Addition Flash Cards.
- Addition and Subtraction Grid Puzzle Worksheets.
In the simplest cases, the two fractions will already have a common denominator. In this case, add the numerators and then reduce the resulting fraction.
Sing songs with hand movements. There are multiplication albums that sing the times tables. You can listen along and learn the times tables through music instead of rote memorization. Listen to a few different versions and find one that works best for you. Add in hand motions or dance moves that illustrate the different number pairs to make the process more interactive.
Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.
