Our Multiply Fractions by Whole Numbers lesson plan breaks down multiplying fractions by whole numbers into four steps. Each step is explained in depth, and several example problems showing how to work through each step are provided. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they roll dice to find numbers to insert into equations, which they then solve. Students are also asked to individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
