When I was in the 5th and 6th grades, we just accepted "Yours is not to reason why, just invert and multiply." However, prior to moving to a rule like this one, it's important that students understand the concept and why it works. Lots of work with fraction circles and strips will help to solidify the concept.

When learning about fractions, it is extremely important to keep it authentic and use many visuals. Children need to physically manipulate fractions to ensure understanding of the concept. Fraction wheels and fraction bars help with the visual aspect.
