Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
As well as a printed blank hundred square, another way to visualise decimals is to make a decimal stick. Get a cane or long stick, place with tape a number 1 to the right hand end, then a 0 to the left. Ask them now to place 0.5 in the middle, then together work out where all the other decimal points should go.
The worksheets on this page have various types of practice for multiplying fractions. Included are problems that focus on cross-cancelling which is a skill that greatly simplifies the process of reducing fractions in the answer step. Cross cancelling prior to multiplying fractions results in much smaller products which are significantly easier to reduce and turn into proper fractions.
