It's about that time of the year for midterms or finals! 

 I teach middle school, so only have a midterm for my 8th grade Algebra students.  I am wondering how much emphasis you (or your school) place on the these test scores.  I am guessing for high school, much more than we do at the middle school level.

For my 8th grade group, the final at the end of the year helps to determine placement of students in high school. 


Any tips or suggestions for making…

Isn't it true that Fractions are always an area of headache for students (and teachers!)
I teach 6-8 grade and it is easy to show visuals of adding/subtracting/multiplying fractions...but dividing can be difficult!

I attached an article I came across that shows a visual explanation of why fractions do what they do when dividing.
I found it very helpful, maybe you will too!
