Unit 7, Lesson 14# Solve multi-step word problems involving converting mixed number measurements to a single unit

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students solve multi-step word problems involving fractional measurement quantities. (For example, "A cartoon lasts 1/2 hour. A move is 6 times as long as the cartoon. How long does it take to watch both the cartoon and the movie?") For each problem, they represent the situation with a tape diagram, calculate a solution using strategies from the previous four lessons, and compare solutions with their classmates.
