              Multiplying Fractions

              Students learn how to multiply fractions using visual and numerical methods.  As learning progresses 'cross simplifying' is introduced for multiplying fractions and mixed numbers.  Calculator methods are used throughout the lesson for the students to check their working.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
