Math
Today we will continue to focus on standards from "The Number System."

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions.
Multiply and divide multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.

So today we are doing our work a little bit different... If you are one of the students that went home and jumped ahead in our textbook I would like for you to visit these three websites and choose one product 3DTin (CLICK HERE) or Design Something (CLICK HERE) or TinkerCAD (CLICK HERE).

Spend the first 15 minutes just playing with the software. Choose which one you like because next I would like for you to create models that represent equivalent fractions. You can click here for an example created by a previous students (CLICK HERE).

Here is your task: I want you to come up with the best way to represent multiplying and dividing fractions using your models. You can CLICK HERE for the software that will allow you to record your screen. If you get this project done, tomorrow I will have something more intense for you.
