I loved this post and how you helped to make sense of fractions for your students. Fractions are so intimidating. I've even seen some of my current classmates freeze up when they see them. You did a great job of breaking it down for your students. I think that students could benefit from learning the "why" at an elementary/middle school level. I've never thought about why we "flip and multiply" (I called it "drop, change, flip"), but I will definitely teach my future students in this way to help them gain understanding of the concepts.
