Our Word Problems Fraction by Whole Number lesson plan teaches students how to effectively solve word problems that include multiplying by a whole number. During this lesson, students are asked to create their own word problems by filling in blanks (for example, filling in missing numbers and fractions) and then solving them; this allows them to use their creativity and ease into writing entire word problems on their own. Students are also asked to solve many practice word problems in which they use what they learned in this lesson to solve problems where they need to multiply by a whole number.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number.
