VIDEO: Dividing Fractions
  • Created By Ashley Scott
  • Description:
    This Math Antics video, a little over five minutes, is for students who have already been exposed to the concept of multiplication of fractions and is now moving on to division of fractions. This video teaches division of fractions by multiplying the dividend (first fraction) by the reciprocal of the divisor (second fraction). This strategy is best understood along with visuals of fraction division, which can be found in the "DVIA: Division of Positive Rational Numbers" playlist.
