This week's focus is subtracting fractions (including borrowing or regrouping). Week 3Lesson 3Cross-Cancelling/Multiplication of FractionsEach lesson will address a critical skill while working with fractions. This week's focus is finding simplifying and multiplying fractions. Week 4Lesson 4Changing Mixed Numbers to Improper Fractions/Division of FractionsEach lesson will address a critical skill while working with fractions. This week's focus is converting and dividing fractions.`
```The student will:

-find the Least Common Multiple in order to add and subtract fractions
-find the Greatest Common Factor in order to simplify fractions
-change mixed numbers to improper fractions in order to multiply and divide fractions```
`Having taught math for 25 years, I know the importance of being fluent in basic math operations.  Each lesson will be scaffolded, in order to provide students with the stepping stones they need to become proficient with these skills.  I also have a wide variety of resources at my disposal, in order to offer students the support they need in being successful with these topics.`

`Students should have a 3-ring binder or some type of math notebook in order to keep track of their notes.  A PDF will be sent to with directions on how to get started/how to access all the materials for the lesson.`
`Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.`
