Multiplying fractions is a big part of 5th grade and can often require additional practice and support to master. This packet focuses on multiplication of fractions by fractions and whole numbers using area models and word problems. Students are asked to analyze problems prior to solving them and provide a written explanation.
This product includes four days of practice pages and then a quiz which assesses student understanding. This can be used as morning work or for small group differentiated instruction. I have used this in my class as a quick and easy way to assess student understanding and gather data for our standards based report cards. The quiz can also be used as a pre assessment to determine present levels of understanding.
Aligns with Common Core State Standard for Math:
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
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.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
