### Jullenne's Fraction Scribepost

When multiplying a fractions, make sure they are both written as a fraction, eg. 6.
1
Then, you multiply the numerator, then the denominator, eg. 6 x 1 = 6
1    2    2
Then, if needed, simplify, eg. 6  x 1 = 6  = 3
1    2    2
6 x 1 = 3
2

It could be said in different ways.
For example:

6 groups of 1
2
6  =  1
1      2

Here's a game you could play, to learn more about multiplying fractions.

My Test Corrections:

1. 2 1    x   1 3   =
2            5

5  x  8  =  40  or  4
2      5      10

2.  2 1  x  1 1   =
4         3

9    x   4   =  36 =  3
4         3       12

3.  In computer technology, a bit 1/8 of a byte. How many bits equal 16 bytes?

16 ÷ 1  =
8

16  x  8  =  128  = 128
1        1        1

1  x  8
8      1

4.  Tamar had 1/2 of an apple pie in her refrigerator. She ate 1/4 of this piece of pie. What fraction of a whole pie did she eat?

1   x  1  =
2       4

2  x  1  =  2    =   1
4      4      16       8

5.  5  x  1  =
6      2

5   of   1
6         2

1. dear jullenne
your post was a little confusing. Also 6/1 does not equal 1/2, and when you are using a number line always start from 0 and start your first hop from there. So on the number line if you count the hops there would be 6 instead of 5.

2. I liked how in your post you used pictures and examples to show multiplying fractions. Your picture helped me understand what 6 groups of 1/2 looks like. Also, I like how you showed 6/1 x 1/2 more than 1 way.

3. I like how you included a video and a game to help us understand better. I also like how you made your pictures and how you showed different ways of doing 6/1x1/2. On your number line, you made a mistake by starting on 1/2 when you're suppose to start from 0.

4. Good Job! I liked how you made the important words bold and on your number line i think it would of been better if you started from zero instead of 1/2.

5. Good job Jullenne! You did a great job on finding a helpful video that's short but very easy to understand and you also added a game which was fun to play! You're post did confuse me a little. Some numbers weren't aligned and if you do a number line you should start from 0 and continue on from there. But overall you did a great job!

6. Good job Jullenne! I really like your video, its very helpful and short.I also like how you put pictures that you have made. But your number line should be starting at 0. But overall good job and keep it up.

7. Great job Jullenne! I love that you found a game that is really fun to play! Next time you should align the numbers better because it was kinda confusing. Also the video you found was very helpful short and very easy to understand. Good job keep up the great work!

8. Great job! I really liked how you showed pictures and explained it good. You also did a great job on the number line. Your video was really helpful and easy to understand.

9. Great job, i like the detail thats in it, and i also like how that video makes sense and the picture is just the right font size, good job(:
