In this lesson, Professor Perez teaches students how to clear fractions using the "Kung Fu" method. The key is to recognize when denominators divide evenly into whole numbers being multiplied by the fraction. Students learn how to simplify fractions and combine them to find the LCD, which is used to rewrite fractions with different denominators as equivalent fractions. By the end of the lesson, students will have mastered this effective and efficient strategy for dealing with fractions.
