Bruce and I are still reviewing reducing and multiplying fractions. We did this lesson out in the yard, and afterwards looked at the problem again on the whiteboard.
2/8 of the flowers are pink.
“Peanut Butter” them together, and 1/4 of the flowers are pink.
Share half of the pink flowers with Jenna. 1/2 of 1/4 = 1/8. Jenna gets 1/8 of the flowers.
That’s the same whiteboard I use for the Morning Message by the way. It get’s a lot of use!
