#### Math Curse, by Jon Scieszka & Lane Smith. What a great book for kids who like math & science - or who don't like them! Excerpt: The whole morning is one problem after another. There are 24 kids in my class. I just know someone is going to bring in cupcakes to share. We sit in 4 rows with 6 desks in each row. What if Mrs. Fibonacci rearranges the desks to make 6 rows?

Equivalent fractions using a multiplication chart. BRILLIANT!! No one ever showed me this in school!

#### Classroom Math, Schools Math, Math Fract, Teaching Math, Math Ideas, Equivalent Fractions, Multiplication Charts, Multiplication Tables, Kid

#### Classroom: Math. Show students how to find equivalent fractions using a multiplication chart. It seems like common sense, but sometimes they don't make the connection between multiples and equivalent fractions.

#### Equivalent fractions on the multiplication matrix...Awesome! You just go across the matrix and see the equivalent fractions!! It ALSO works if you skip a row in between...ex: 3/5, 6/10, 9/15...as long as you follow the same row across! Very cool for kids who can write their own multiplication table.

#### Here's a FABULOUS idea for using a multiplication table to highlight equivalent fractions! Been teaching math for 10 years and never thought of this. Duh!
