Partial Products This PowerPoint presentation shows the partial products method nicely. I found this on the internet. If anyone can find the author, please let me know so that I can give them credit for it.

//http://www.coolmath4kids.com/times-tables/times-tables-lesson-lattice-multiplication-1.html// This site explains lattice multiplication. One image didn't show up for me. This image was trying to show that when you have a single digit as a product (say, 2 x 4 =8), you would write the product with a "0" in the tens place. So "8" would be written as "08" so that each part of the box would be filled.

http://www.aaamath.com/fra42a-idequivfract.html Remember to multiply your fraction by a form of "1", like 2/2 or 3/3 or 4/4 or 10/10 or 11/11 or 20/20 or 100/100 (you get the idea), to get an equivalent fraction.
