# Multiplying with Fractions # Multiplying with Fractions

Year 8 maths lesson on multiplying with fractions.  Students learn how to calculate the product of two fractions first by multiplying the numerator and denominator and as learning progresses by cross-simplifying.More able students are challenged to simplify simple algebraic fractions using the same method.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to multiply the numerators and denominators to find the product of two fractions.
• Most students should be able to find the product of two fractions by cross-simplifying.
• Some students should be able to simplify the product of algebraic fractions by cross-simplifying.
