Start by following the basic process for fraction multiplication, turning any mixed fractions into improper ones. Before you cross cancel or multiply, however, swap the numerator and the denominator in the second fraction. This is called taking the reciprocal and it is the key step to turn this into a division operation. Then, cross cancel, multiply across to get the answer fraction, and reduce.

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.
Practicing addition with your child is a great way to get him excited about math! Young kids who are beginning to learn addition often need to see a visual representaion of any given problem. Many kids will use their fingers and toes, but make things more fun by using counters. You can use pieces of cereal, beads, mini marshmallows or anything you would like. Kids love switching things up with large-sized counters, so bust out pillows or purses to make learning addition even more fun.
