This two-page resource is perfect for a quick assessment, homework, or in class worksheet. I have included 21 questions assessing your students' knowledge of multiplying fractions by a whole number. An answer key is included for your convenience. :)
*Note: This assessment does have some questions which require your students to be able to change improper fractions to mixed numbers, as well as find the product in lowest terms.
Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = (ac)/(bd).
Solvereal world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
