Unit 2, Lesson 5# Practicing Part by Whole Multiplication with Fraction Strip and Number Line Models in Context

Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 60 min(s)

Students will have time to practice what they have learned about part by whole multiplication including working on writing their own contextualized word problems for other students to solve. This also gives the teacher time to pull in students for small group instruction while students are involved in math learning stations. Multiplication of whole numbers can be represented by the area model and a number lineConsistent use of visual models (fraction strip, number line, etc.) and equations to solve word problems.
