Are your students having trouble grasping the concept of representing the multiplication of decimals through models? In this download I have created 6 practice pages of shaded equations with a factor over a whole for student to practice with, 4 pages with given equations where students need to shade in the model to represent it, 4 practice questions and an open ended page where students create their own word problem, equation, and shade in the model.
I’ve found that these open ended questions help my students to really see and understand this standard.
This document can be used for whole group lessons, small group, intervention, homework, or spiral and center activities or even assessments. Printing in color is highly recommended as it helps in the understanding of the models. Answer key is provided for student self-check or teacher quick check. There is also an answer recording sheet for students to use if desired.
I use these during small group pull out sessions with my fifth grade special education students.
This document is aligned to TEK 5.3D and CCSS 5.NBT.B.7
NOTE: This document specifically focuses on the hundredths grid models with one factor over 1 whole and the other a decimal in the tenths place (ex: 1.3 x 0.4)
