This week in math we learned how to divide fractions. Luckily it's as easy as remembering a cool radio station name.
Here's how it works:
Keep the first fraction the same.
Change the division sign to a multiplication sign.
Flip the second fraction.
This 2 minute movie will show how it's done:
Now, when you divide fractions by whole numbers or vice versa, just remember to put the whole number over 1 to easily change it into a fraction. You have to do this to help with the Flip and Multiply steps.
If the whole number comes second in the equation, you'll have to do what we at KCFM like to call The Whole Number Flip.
It's the latest craze.
For a quick review of this concept, watch the 2 minute video below.

This Veterans Day, Mrs. Sol's Class would like to honor the brave soldiers in our lives...
Lacie's cousin Tyler
Willis Cutler, U.S. Navy
"Andrew wanted to send in a picture of his Great-Grandpa Bill for
Veteran's Day. Willis Cutler (Bill) served in the Navy during World War
II. His stories are amazing and we are grateful that he is still with us
Ed Philips, U.S. Navy
J.C., U.S. Marine Corps
"Here is a picture of Olivia and her cousin J.C. He is an active Marine
currently stationed in Hawaii. He has been sent on tour to Iraq once and
Afghanistan three times. His last trip to Afghanistan some of his
platoon stepped on a IED. He luckily wasn't hurt badly and was honored
for his bravery and helping his platoon. He is our family hero."
On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;
We owe so much to them,
Who keep us safe from terror,
So when you see a uniform,
Please say "thank you" to the wearer.
If you would like to salute a military veteran in your family, send his or her name and photo to me via k-mail or e-mail this week and I will add them to our honor page!
