When you start teaching division to your child you should introduce division as being a sharing operation where objects are shared (or divided) into a number of groups of equal number.
Learning multiplication facts is an essential part of childhood math. It takes time to learn them, but with a few tips and tricks, you can conquer them with practice. Once you have them memorized, you can work on getting faster with them so that the numbers just come to you. Some of the multiplication facts are simpler than others, but many of them have helpful hints that make them easier to learn.
Ask family to quiz you on your multiplication tables. Once you have studied them enough to know them well, ask your family to quiz you on the tables you have just learned. This will help you remember them long term and keep the numbers fresh in your head. When you have all the tables memorized, ask them to quiz you on all of the numbers, not just one number at a time.
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.
