Sometimes, it’s really just all about pie. Who gets how much pie. How many pieces of pie. Fractions of pies. Big fractions for me, please.
When you are learning how to add or subtract fractions, it’s easy enough to get the whole common denominator thing figured out. I mean, if Uncle Billy ate half of the cherry apple, you know you’re only going to have a third of the pie left after you take your traditional one sixth slice. Denominators of two and three and six… It’s just basic pierithmetic.
But multiplying and dividing, that requires skills. Serious skills. And that’s where this fraction calculator might come in handy. Whether you have to deal with mixed fractions or improper fractions, or if you just need a little help with the core operations on simple fractions, this calculator is built just for you. It will reduce and simply anything you put into it, and along the way give you a visual preview to help show what’s going on. Check out the YouTube video in this post for a quick demo, or just go straight to the link below.
Also works great for pizza. Because, you know. Pizza is a pie, too.
Sometimes a letter size piece of paper is just too much, even for a 100 multiplication facts. Sometimes you just need something a little more discrete, something that you can slip into your pocket, something you can reach for on a moment’s notice without the social stigma that comes from unfurling a giant multiplication chart out of your backpack and announcing you can’t remember the product of 6×7 to the world. Again.
Well, maybe not you, but maybe one of your budding math minions.
