Unit 5, Lesson 40# Solve word problems involving the multiplication of a whole number and a fraction including those involving line plots

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue applying their knowledge of multiplicative comparison in context. They make connections between models and equations to solve word problems involving mixed numbers. They use data from line plots to make comparisons as well as solve problems. For example, they will use the line plot data to answer, "One of the players on the team is now 4 times as tall as he was at birth, when he measured 1 5/8 feet. Who is the player?"
