Students explore the multiplication of a fraction by a whole number or a whole number by a fraction. Instruction includes the use of visual models or number lines and the connection to the commutative property of multiplication. Students apply their understanding of multiplying fractions to solve real-world problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number or a whole number by a fraction. Problems include creating real-world situations based on an equation or representing a real-world problem with a visual model or equation. Fractions are less than 1, and denominators are limited to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, and 100.
