Has anyone come across a way such as a rhyme, a song a youtube clip etc of a simple way to remember how to add, multiply, subtract and divide fractions please. Thank you

    My class love songs - they like one on YouTube sung by the Washington lot, type in Fractions Washington, its the first option. For dividing they like Dividing Fractions Keep Change Flip song. In fact they asked me for it today and Friday! Worth a look. It is catchy though. Watch out!

    Try MathAntics on Youtube. He is very good, fast paced and very animated. A good one off.

    How about practising a multiplication, an addition, a division and a subtraction every day as a starter?
