Multiplying a fraction and a whole number in a real-world context
This product provides six focus quizzes:
*each focus quiz contains five word problems on one page
*there are 30 word problems in all
*each word problem is followed by multiple choice options
*word problems contain unit fractions, but they are not the focus in this product
*this product also includes an answer key for all focus quizzes conveniently fit onto one page
All 30 multiple choice items assess student understanding of the process of multiplying a fraction and a whole number. The student is not required to solve the problem. The same types of questions are in each focus quiz.
The questions require students to:
*know that we can represent a whole number as a fraction
*understand that the product of a fraction and a whole number will be less than the whole number
*know how to set up an expression to solve a word problem involving multiplication of a fraction and a whole number (using both multiplication and addition)
