This alternative method of doing long multiplication helps to separate the multiplying from the adding. The method also gives greater insight into what long multiplication is, and helps lay a foundation for algebra ’FOIL’ later.]]>

This slide show covers adding two fractions with the same denominator, adding two fractions with one denominator that is a factor of the other, and, finally adding fractions with different denominators. There are a small number of questions for a class to complete as a ’check on learning’ during the presentation. I’m assuming the class have access to a textbook or other collection of problems for use after the presentation. This slideshare version is pretty dry. I usually include a visual ’starter’ image of some kind, often a funny sign or joke or screen grab of a news article.]]>
