This files contains 6 printables that correlate with Common Core 4.NF.B.4, as well as some helpful tips. These pages can be used as guided practice, independent practice or homework. They are also a great way to review!
4.NF.B.4 - Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a
fraction by a whole number.
4.NF.B.4.a - Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 × (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 × (1/4).
4.NF.B.4.b - Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)
4.NF.B.4.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?
