What standards are addressed?
Common Core Standards:
4.NF.1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
4.NF.2. Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators.
4.NF.3. Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
4.NF.4. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
5.NF.3. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.
5.NF.4. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
5.NF.5. Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing), by: a. 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. b. Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n×a)/(n×b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.
5.NF.6. Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
