Unit 5, Lesson 3# Decompose non-unit fractions and represent them as a whole number times a unit fraction using tape diagrams

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use a tape diagram to model that a non-unit fraction less than 1 equals a unit fraction multiplied by a whole number and use a tape diagram to model that a non-unit fraction greater than 1 equals a unit fraction multiplied by a whole number. Students also generate a multiplication expression of a whole number and unit fraction that equals a non-unit fraction greater than one as given in a tape diagram.
