#### This is a great way to teach fractions. It is called the backwards zorro. The students are suppose to draw a line from the bottom number, 4, to the 24. They will find out how many 4 goes into 24 (6 times). They then draw a line from 24 to the 3. They will do 3 times 6 which equals 18. They will draw a line off of the 3 and write 18. This way students were able to find out that 3/4 of 24 was 18.

#### Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos.

#### Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? My co-worker came up with a fabulous name for the tried and true strategy that we probably all use: The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos. Here's how it works: Starting at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times). Draw the line to the 3 (six times three is 18). Draw the top line and write the answer. Presto!

#### Using the "backwards Zorro" to solve fraction of a number problems...love, love, love
