Fraction multiplication is a difficult concept for many young learners to grasp! These scaffolded notes will give your students the opportunity to model the process of multiplying fractions times whole numbers as well as fractions time fractions. They will also serve as a useful reference if stored in a math notebook.
Note: After trying many different methods for modeling fractions multiplication in my own 5th grade classroom, this is the technique that has worked the best! I personally like to split the two note-taking sheets across two lessons. Students will need colored pencils, a post-it note, and preferably counters to use during the lesson.
