This award-winning series helps students to build confidence in their ability to "do math" and develop the knowledge and skills required to become mathematically literate. This lesson shows that multiplication of fractions is related to the multiplication of whole numbers. A rationale for the canceling process is developed. A logical, step-by-step process for multiplying mixed numbers is then developed. Various types of fractional multiplication problems are shown as well as multiplication problems involving more than two numbers. Students will learn to explain why the canceling process works in multiplication and how to multiply fractions and mixed numbers.
