### Jordan's ScribePost

Today in class we learned a few new ways to multiply fractions

1: The first way was using a Array Model for example 2/3 x 1/2 would be shown like that-------------------------------------------------->

2: Another way was that we used standard form which is multiplying both numerators and multiplying both denominators to get the anwser for example

Also Kyle showed us a way which is if you have 1/2 x 1/5 you just switch the numerators/ denominators like so to make the multiplying easier..........................

Homework for today were some multiplying questions listed below

Show 2 Different ways for each!!!!

1/2 x 1/4

3/10 x 1/2

2/3 x 3/4

2/5 x 1/3

3/4 x 5/7

2/3 x 3/4

5/6 x 4/5

3/8 x 1/3

1/2 x 1/2

3/5 x 1/4

2/3 x 5/12

i still dont understand the "ARRAY" way. it looks confusing becasue then like when you draw the square i get lost after that part...=/ is there an easier way that you can explain it in words and picutures?
