EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue to explore the use of the distributive property to multiply a whole number by a mixed number. They identify unknown factors. For example, students use the distributive property to fill in the unknown numbers in 5 x 8 1/5 = ( __ x 8) + ( __ x 1/5). Then students use and share strategies for using the distributive property to find the product. Finally, they solve word problems using learned strategies.
