In this lesson on reducing fractions, the teacher emphasizes the importance of practicing different approaches to solve problems efficiently. By dividing both the numerator and denominator by the same number, students can simplify fractions and solve problems in steps. Through a series of examples, the teacher demonstrates how to divide by 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 to reduce fractions to their lowest terms without a calculator.
