Unit 4, Lesson 33# Create story contexts for numerical expressions and tape diagrams, and solve word problems.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue synthesizing knowledge about multiplying and dividing decimals and fractions in context. They create models, such as tape diagrams and number lines, to solve word problems. For example, they determine how many liters each student gets if Ms. Hayes has 1/2 liter of juice and distributes it equally to 6 students in her tutoring group. Then they create story problems, given a number sentence or tape diagram. For example, they create a story problem for 1/2 x ($20 -$3.20).
