Unit 5, Lesson 36# Represent the multiplication of n times a/b as (n x a)/b using the associative property and visual models

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use a tape diagram to generate an addition sentence and then rewrite the repeated addition problem as n times a/b. Next, students solve n times a/b as (n x a)/b and rename the product as a mixed number. Finally, students solve a word problem involving the multiplication of fractions.
