Here's a great resource for teaching the Common Core Standard 5.NF.5. This PowerPoint thoroughly demonstrates the standard, Interpret Multiplication as Scaling. The presentation uses several visual representations and examples that model and demonstrate 5.NF.5a. The three types of scaling identified in 5.NF.5b are separately discussed and modelled. Also, there are three worksheets to go along with the presentation that can be printed and used along with the PowerPoint. Your students will enjoy the ability to self-evaluate their understanding when they check their work with the included Answer Key slides.

Students are given plenty of opportunities to interact and receive immediate feedback.
