I love this! Today we began division. I always suck my kids in by telling them I'm going to teach them how to divide without division. They never believe me, but it doesn't take long for them to figure out where I'm going. We use multiplication to divide! After all, multiplication is way more fun than division, right? ;) P2
This video uses the 'Keep, Change, Flip' mnemonic to teach students how to divide fractions. Keep the first fraction the same, change the division sign to multiplication, flip the second fraction over, then solve it the same way as a multiplication problem, by multiplying the numerators and denominators. The song shows students this process with an example problem and explains the math behind it.
