Our Interpret Fraction Products lesson plan teaches students about multiplying fractions and how to represent those problems with a visual model. During this lesson, students are asked to solve given problems using the standard algorithm, draw a visual representation of the expression to show their thinking, and then write a story to match the problem. Students are also asked to solve various practice problems to solidify their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to multiply fractions by a whole number. Using this understanding, students will be able to create a visual model and story to accompany the mathematical problem.
