Subject: Criss-cross method

	
I don't like this method because when it comes to multiplying
fractions, they tend to cross multiply and mix things up. Also with
this method they are not learning why they are cross multiplying. With
LCM then tend to see the purpose behind what they are doing better. My
2 cents.
