I’m Mr. Hehn, and I’ve developed some excellent materials for my classroom throughout my 7 years as an elementary public school teacher that I’d love to share with you. I like to incorporate dancing, singing, and listening to music into my lessons. My project, NUMBEROCK, is a collection of music videos that teach/reinforce mathematical concepts that include posters and lesson plans to make learning math fun in a whole new way.

LYRICS

I was running 8 miles away. I had already run 3/4 of the way.
To find how far I'd traveled from my front door.
I did 8 times 3 and got 24.
Then I divided by 4 and I got 6.
Six miles I had run in my brand new kicks!

Multiplying whole numbers by fractions is awesome. Yea!
Well here's a similar problem. We'll not have forgotten.
Multiply by the top. Divide by the bottom.
Multiply by the top. Divide by the bottom.

I was riding to the video game shop.
I had ridden 5/6 of 12 city blocks.
How far I had gone is what I wanted to find.
12 Times 5 is what I multiplied.
I got 60 and then divided by 6.
I had ridden 10 blocks and did a cool bike trick.

Chorus

A girl used repeated addition to see..
if she could use the strategy to solve 1/2 times 3.
She thought fast, and then it came like a FLASH!
That 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2 is 3 halves.
She converted 3 halves to 1 and a half.
She had a crush that would last. It was a crush on MATH!

... represent and solve multiplication of a whole number and a fraction that refers to the same whole using objects and pictorial models, including area models.

Common Core Standard ( CCSS )
4.NF.B.4
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
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).
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.)
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?
Note: Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.
5.NF.B.4
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
