### Multiplying fractions using area model visuals

A few weeks ago I blogged about a few digital fraction multiplication resources for Google. In this post I want to share a multiplying fractions with visual models video.

I've been building a visual math playlist on my YouTube channel with videos for fraction multiplication and division, solving equations, ways to use algebra tiles, strategies for tackling integers, etc. I have a lot of videos planned to add-- prime numbers, even and odd, more to go along with my free math cheat sheets.... it's been a lot of fun.

My daughter has been wanting to be in my math videos so will be part of a couple coming up. As hectic as this time at home has been, a silver lining has been seeing math through the eyes of a little person. You know how they say, "Never say never"? Well I can't count the times I have said that I could never teach kindergarten. How can any one person teach another person how to read? It always seemed like magic. And then, well, quarantine. I guess I can take it as a reminder that we can do anything we put our minds to.

My whole goal with the videos I've been making is to get right to the point, but I did get some feedback to add some wait time to this video so that students can work along with it. Hearing this it makes a lot of sense, especially if the videos will be used for distance learning or as the main math lesson. I'd love your ideas on this. Do you like wait time in videos or would you rather a quick video that can be paused if necessary?
