Multiplying fractions – mixed numbers – visual models – fractions – multiplication – multiplying fractions by mixed numbers – project – 5.NF.5

This project is a great culmination for teaching multiplying fractions, particularly multiplying fractions in real world situations. Students will find the area of 3 different iPhone models. Students are required to show their work both with area models and with the standard algorithm for multiplying mixed numbers. They will then present their information creatively on a poster.

Download the preview to see what you will get. There are 3 pictures included in the product that show real student examples of what a final project looks like.
