Multiply Fractions Digital Resource Pack - Visual Models Included
Use visual models and area models along with the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to multiply fractions and multiply mixed numbers using this comprehensive digital resource pack.
Using visual models and area models, students will have a more hands-on approach to “see” what it looks like when multiplying fractions and mixed numbers in addition to using the standard algorithm. It’s great for kinesthetic learners as well as students that may struggle with memorizing algorithms.
This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep and easy to assign to a sub and contains engaging activities using Google Slides and Google Forms. If your students are struggling conceptually, this resource is for you!
Standards: 5.NF.4, 5.NF.4a, 5.NF.4b, 5.NF.6
How Can You Use This?
Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems in Google Slides. I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and pulling the slides up on a Smartboard if you’re in person or share the screen online if you’re teaching virtually.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice slides. Check for understanding and mastery after teaching each skill using the exit tickets.
When all skills have been taught, assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.
