I have watched these videos multiple times. I have also had “bean parties” in class. I have also just shown the videos directly to my 5th grade gifted students. ALWAYS FABULOUS! Very helpful! Dividing fractions in my classroom has become one of the most satisfying math learning experiences my students have all year. THANK YOU, VALERIE FAULKNER!

Thank you so much for this kind note! You made my day. I am so glad that the videos have been useful to you and your students! Let me know if you have any questions. Am glad to hear you are having bean parties in Illinois!
thanks again,

This is amazing! I have used with my students and it truly builds a conceptual understanding. I have shared with others. One of the best learning experiences in Foundations of Mathematics. Thank you for the video. I can refer others to this and often do.

This is an excellent tutorial in learning how to divide fractions. For me, the standard rule of dividing fractions is very important to be understood deeply to avoid confusion. The rule state that you have to invert the divisor fraction and apply the rule of multiplication of fraction. This means that you need to understand first the rule of multiplication of fraction. If there is doubt in the answer, I think fraction solver from https://www.fractioncalc.com/fraction-solver is a good reference.
