This resource includes 5 different math activities, 32 task cards, and an assessment all related to the standards below.
The activities range from justifying knowledge by making a math poster, sorting, and worksheets with equations that align to the standard. The activities are great to use whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, for homework, for centers, as enrichment, or in math journals/notes. The activities and assessment include answer keys and pictures when necessary to help guide your instruction.
The activities would best be completed after your students have a firm understanding of multiplying fractions of all types (basic fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers, whole numbers, fractions equal to one, etc.). Once students are familiar with problems involving all fraction types, they will have a better knowledge of patterns they notice when multiplying and this will help while completing the activities in this resource.
The task cards are great to use to incorporate into your math unit on fractions. Students will use the skills that they have learned to make generalizations based on patterns they notice in these types of equations. There are 32 task cards and the answer key is included for your convenience. :)
These task cards are great to use for a game of Scoot!, homework, centers, warm-ups, enrichment, examples in math journals/notes, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, or just for a fun learning activity! Copy your task cards, laminate them, cut them out, and keep them for years to come! Then, just print a copy of the student task card recording sheet for each child in your class and your students are all set for some fun!
*These task cards would also work well for enriching the content for your fourth grade students or as an intervention for 6th graders.
Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication.
Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n × a)/(n × b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.
