Self Checking Scavenger Hunt that can be completed independently or in pairs. The activity includes 8 different problems where students multiply proper fractions. Some answers must be simplified or converted to mixed numbers.

Students start at any card. They record the letter in the first space after the word βPathβ at the bottom of the page. They solve the problem in the box that has the same letter as the card. Students then go look for the answer they got at the top of a different card after the words βif you gotβ¦β. When they find the card, they record the letter on the next line at the bottom of the page showing their path. Solve the problem in the correct lettered box and repeat the process. The last card they solve should take them back to the beginning or the first card they started with. This is a great self-checking tool for students. If they cannot find their answer or they go back to the beginning too soon, then they know they made a mistake and should go back and check their work.

Interpret the product (π’/π£) Γ π² as a parts of a partition of π² into π£ equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations π’ Γ π² Γ· π£. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) Γ 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) Γ (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (π’/π£) Γ (π€/π₯) = π’π€/π£π₯.)
