Test your skills with these multiplying fractions games. How did you do? When you're done, explore the last site about careers that use math. Does anything catch your eye? Enjoy your math experience!



Game 1....Watch out!!! You have to simplify to get a correct answer....ex: instead of typing 9/12, you'd type 3/4 for your final answer.

Game 2...Read directions carefully...you don't have to simplify the answer

When in the (real) world will you ever need to know order of operations? What's the point with "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally"? Can you find any good videos to share about PEMDAS? Your other mission, should you choose to take it, is to do some research and find other ways/reasons PEMDAS is useful. As always, there are some games for you to show what you know. Do you have a favorite?
