              Multiplying Mixed Numbers and Top-Heavy Fractions

              Students learn how to calculate the product of mixed numbers and top heavy fractions using cross-simplifying.  As learning progresses this is linked to finding the area of rectangles with lengths as mixed numbers.  More able students consider squares and cubes of mixed numbers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the product of two top-heavy fractions.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the simplified product of two or more mixed numbers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the cube of a mixed number using cross-simplifying.
