# Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Is a Piece of Cake

Help me give my students an opportunity for understanding multiplying and dividing fractions using hands-on activities. The activity allows students to use measuring cups to solve real-world math problems.

• \$301 goal

### My Students

Every year, I have a wonderful group of students. Most work hard in understanding the concepts that I teach them. Alas, some students struggle with these subjects. One thing I love about teaching is giving my students an opportunity to learn using hands-on experience.

I love it when students use hands-on activities and suddenly their eyes light up and their confidence soars.

They finally understand. In 5th-grade there are many hard lessons that students need to learn in just one year. With determination, grit, and perseverance my students can learn and succeed.

### My Project

When using the math book, there are just worksheets and story problems for the students to solve. There is no understanding of the students multiplying or dividing with fractions.

These measuring cups can help students understand with real-world experiences.

With the measuring cups, they can use the cups to measure how many 1/2 cups are in the 3/4 container. They can also look at how many time 1/2 cup is in a double recipe. Students will be able to measure and manipulate using these tools to help them understand what is the whole they are multiplying or dividing. Using these real-world tools will also help them draw models for their story problems.
