Our Fraction Multiplication, Explain lesson plan teaches students how to multiply fractions with both whole numbers and other fractions. During this lesson, students are asked to look at numbers and equations and determine which is larger (for example, which out of 205 or 205 x 35 would be larger?) in order to demonstrate their understanding of multiplication of whole numbers and fractions. Students are also asked to practice solving multiplication problems with both whole numbers and fractions on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to multiply fractions with whole numbers to produce a product greater than the given number and multiply a fraction by a fraction to produce a number less than the given number.
