Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
We often talk of dividing as being the reverse of multiplying, and indeed when dividing fractions this is the case. The way you divide fractions is very similar to the way fractions are multiplied with a simple twist in the middle.
Division with remainders. Your child will most likely come across or ask about situations where division “does not work.” These can be explained with the introduction of the remainder. It is an important idea to understand as the division of larger numbers will require the “carrying” of this remainder.
If you want to boost love for math for your child, one of the best things you can do is play a math game. A game puts both of you in a good mood and the child directly experiences the fun side of you and math. What’s more, it need not be complex. In fact, you can make a lot of math games right at your home and start playing in less than a minute.
