Our Fraction Multiplication – Visual Models lesson plan teaches students how to model fraction multiplication problems visually to solve them.┬áDuring this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to think about ways that fractions can be multiplied using a topic chosen by them and then write two problems and solve each one using both a visual drawing and the standard algorithm. Students are also asked to solve problems by drawing a picture to represent their thinking.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve real-world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers.
