Children love to sing and the fraction song has always been a standard when doing fractions. Then take that numerator and denominator and segment them by that common factor. "Simplest form" and" lowest terms" are synonyms, which( you may have heard) are two separate phrases or words whose clarities are uniform. Employing a geometric modeling can help us hear what's happening when turning to simplest figure. A rectangle pictures five-fifteenths. The GCF is 5, which means no greater number can segment both fifteen and five.

When we sing the fraction song we get all excited about fractions. Teach your children this song and you will not have to remind them of the steps it takes to find common factors and reduce to the simplest terms. If it were up to me all math calculation would have a song to go along with them.

So divide both by five; get one-third, its lowest terms. It's So Boss Being A Nerd! To convert to the simplest figure, we've gotta find the greatest common factor.
