Make Me or Break Me: Multiplying and Dividing Fractions, Decimals, Integers, and Rational Numbers
“Make Me or Break Me” focuses on individuals who spend time with those who are different. The ways of numbers rub off on each other from their time spent together, but division of these friendships won’t always be as simple. Help individuals make new friends and gain new habits…or break away from others once they get their points across!
