# Two Step Mixed Products

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet presents a series of problems on multiplying mixed numbers, with a clear two-step instructional process at the top. Step one instructs students to convert each mixed number into an improper fraction, while step two guides them to multiply the fractions and simplify the results if possible. The worksheet contains six problems, each providing a set of mixed numbers that need to be worked through according to the given steps. Spaces are provided for students to write down each step of their work, ensuring they follow the procedure correctly.

The worksheet is designed to teach students the systematic approach to multiplying mixed numbers by first converting them into improper fractions. By doing so, it reinforces the concept that mixed numbers can be expressed entirely as fractions, which is a fundamental skill in fraction operations. The second step focuses on the multiplication of these improper fractions, guiding students to apply their knowledge of fraction multiplication and simplification. Ultimately, the worksheet seeks to build students’ confidence in manipulating mixed numbers and understanding the multiplicative relationships between fractions.
