Week 25 2-20

Math:
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number. a. Understand a fraction / as a multiple of 1/ . For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 x (1/4 ), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 x (1/4 ). b. Understand a multiple of / as a multiple of 1/ , and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 x (2/5 ) as 6 x (1/5 ), recognizing this product as 6/5 . (In general, n x (/ ) = ( )/ ). c. Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number, e.g. by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party will eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at the party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie? MAFS.4.NF.2.4
