Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)

Big Idea:
In this lesson, students play a jeopardy game using a smart board, to review important fraction concepts. Students will complete a fraction assessment in the near future, so this is an important lesson for me to gauge students' abilities and skills.

Big Idea:
In this lesson students work in small groups to multiply a fraction with a whole number and then participate in a math gallery walk in order to deepen their understanding of fraction concepts.

Big Idea:
Voki is a creative way to get students to assess their own learning about fractions (or any topic), as well as incorporate writing into math.

Big Idea:
In this lesson, students work with partners to play a card game in which they can refine and practice the skill of multiplying a fraction with a whole number.

Big Idea:
Measuring the the length and width of their faces, hands, feet and height, students create whimsical selves using adding machine tape and some construction paper.

Big Idea:
Using this pre-assessment, students will show the rigorous understanding that Common Core demands about multiplication of fractions by whole numbers.
