4 Unit Overview Big Idea 4 The same rules and strategies that apply for multiplying and dividing whole numbers also apply for multiplying and dividing decimals. Because multiplication is scaling, when we multiply a quantity by a number larger than 1, it produces a larger quantity. When a quantity is multiplied by a number smaller than 1, it produces a smaller quantity. Unit Objectives Students will be able to multiply decimals by decimals with both factors and products to the hundredths. Use concrete models or drawings. Explain their thinking and strategies in numbers and words using understanding of place value and/or properties of operations. Answer questions about their strategies, including, but not limited to: How did you do it? What have you tried? What did you learn when that didn't work? Why does that make sense to you? Why do you think that's true? Is it always true? Under what conditions is it true? Students will be able to divide decimals by decimals with divisor, dividend, and quotient to the hundredths. Use concrete models or drawings. Explain their thinking and strategies in numbers and words using understanding of place value and/or properties of operations. Answer questions about their strategies, including, but not limited to: How did you do it? What have you tried? What did you learn when that didn't work? Why does that make sense to you? Why do you think that's true? Is it always true? Under what conditions is it true? Students will understand and be able to explain how the magnitude of the product relates to the magnitude of the factors. Unit Description This unit starts with students demonstrating their multiplication and division knowledge from previous units. This unit will expand upon their previous knowledge by continuing on to multiplication and division of decimals by decimals. In the first lesson series, students will use their knowledge of base ten blocks to learn how to model multiplication of decimals by decimals, they will also begin to notice how scaling is related to multiplication, i.e. the relationship between factors and products. A variety of activities will help students become proficient multiplying decimals by decimals, and placing the decimal in the correct place. The second lesson series will focus on division of decimals by decimals using base ten blocks to model the division. A variety of activities will continue to help students become proficient dividing decimals by decimals. Students should begin to realize how multiplying or dividing by decimals less than 1, or greater than 1 will affect the product or quotient of problems. This lesson series will mirror what was learned in the first lesson series. In these two lesson series, students will have opportunities to demonstrate their proficiency in both multiplication and division of decimals by decimals using the exit slips, as well as on the final activity on Day 4 of Lesson Series 2. During Day 3 of both Lesson Series 1 and 2, you will have an opportunity to demonstrate an algorithm to show multiplication and

5 5 division of decimals by decimals. In the third lesson series, students will apply all of their knowledge of multiplication and division of decimals by decimals as they plan a road trip through the western United States. They will be asked to calculate total distance as well as fuel costs of the trip. In the Entry Task, students will have an opportunity to show how proficient they are in multiplying decimals by decimals in a farmer s market shopping situation. They will also have the opportunity to show if they can divide decimals by decimals, or use an alternate method to show division. In the Apprentice Task, students will show their understanding of the placement of decimals as well as the role of scaling when multiplying a decimal by a decimal. Written explanations will give the students an opportunity to express their thinking process during this task. In the Expert Task, students use their understanding of decimals, division, and its relationship with multiplication to determine possible dimensions for a quilt with a given area. This task will allow the teacher to assess students learning in the last lesson series: dividing decimals by decimals. Students will use what they know about division of decimals, area models and the relationship between multiplication and division to determine effective strategies for problem solving. In the Milestone Task, students will be asked to demonstrate their knowledge of all of the skills they learned in this unit. The task has two parts. The first part will be similar to the activity in Lesson Series 3, where students will be asked to calculate distance, amount of gas, and how much the gas for the trip would cost. Students will then be asked two constructed response questions where they demonstrate their proficiency in multiplication and division of decimals by decimals. The final constructed response question will be similar to all the exit slips where students will find and correct errors in a student sample. This task will allow you to assess the students overall ability with multiplication and division of decimals. The Milestone Task for this unit is also the CLA#2 performance assessment. There are homework assignments provided for every day of the three lesson series; some of the assignments are differentiated. Numbers and Operations in Base Ten CCSS-M Content Standards Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths. 5.NBT.7 Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used. Numbers and Operations Fractions Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions. 5.NF.5 Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing), by: 5.NF.5a Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication. 5.NF.5b Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n a)/(n b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.

6 Progression of Mathematical Ideas Prior Supporting Mathematics Current Essential Mathematics Future Mathematics 6 In fourth grade, students begin their learning of the decimal system with an introduction into decimal notations of the tenths or hundredths place. They learned how to compare decimals up to the hundredths place value, when they refer to the same whole. They are able to compare using <, >, = symbols and using visual models to justify their conclusions. In Unit 1 of fifth grade, students became fluent using an algorithm for multiplication and division of whole numbers, which can then be used for multiplication and division of decimals. Students will build on their work from Unit 5.4 by multiplying and dividing decimals by decimals. While deepening their sense of place value, students will also use their understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division to determine how decimal factors and divisors/dividends affect the magnitude of the product and quotients. Students will use concrete models and drawings to model these operations. In Unit 7 of fifth grade, students will extend their understanding of the properties of multiplication of non-whole numbers in the multiplication of fractions. In sixth grade, students will fluently calculate using all operations with decimals using the standard algorithm. In addition, students will extend their understanding of multiplication as scaling when they work with proportional relationships. In Unit 2 of fifth grade, students extended their learning by writing and comparing decimal to the thousandths place value. They round numbers to any place value, and begin to understand the relationship between place values and powers of 10. In Unit 4 of fifth grade, students began adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals by whole numbers, using models or drawings, and written methods to explain their reasoning. Students learned how to multiply and divide by a power of 10.

7 Unit Design All SFUSD Mathematics Core Curriculum Units are developed with a combination of rich tasks and lessons series. The tasks are both formative and summative assessments of student learning. The tasks are designed to address four central questions: Entry Task: What do you already know? Apprentice Task: What sense are you making of what you are learning? Expert Task: How can you apply what you have learned so far to a new situation? Milestone Task: Did you learn what was expected of you from this unit? 7 1 day 4 days 1 day 4 days 1 day 3 days 1 day Total: 15 days

They will write out how they know their answers are correct. Students find all the possibilities for missing numbers in a multiplication problem with decimals (. * 0.5 = 0. ). Students will write out all of the equations they come up with. Students notice patterns and justify their thinking around finding all possibilities. Students use their understanding of area models and the relationship between division and multiplication to find possible dimensions for a quilt with an area of 5.76 square meters. Students use multiplication and division of decimals to find kilometers traveled, gallons of gas used, and cost of gas in the context of a road trip. Students also show understanding of multiplication and division of decimals in context-free constructed response questions and in finding the errors in an example calculation.

10 Entry Task Farmer s Market What will students do? 10 Mathematics Objectives and Standards Math Objectives: Students will be able to solve multiplication problems with decimals. Students will be able to solve division problems with decimals. CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7 Potential Misconceptions: Students may have misconceptions about the procedure of multiplication of decimals in that the decimals have to be lined up to multiply. Students may have misconceptions about the procedure of division of decimals in that the decimal can be left in the dividend. Framing Student Experience Launch: Have a number talk about multiplication and division of decimals and whole numbers (review of unit 4). Explain they will work individually to solve a problem, explain what a farmer s market is. During: Students will work individually to solve problems about how much it costs to purchase a bag of apples, and how many bananas they can purchase with a given amount of money. Students should show their work using words, numbers, and visuals, and explain how they know they are correct. Probe with questions: How did you get your answer? How do you know your answer is correct? After students finish their calculations, they should write a note about how they solved their problems. *Begin to identify students who used different methods to solve each problem. Closure/Extension: As a class, ask students to share out different methods they used to solve each problem. (Prompt those who you identified with different methods.)

Differentiation Strategies: Intervention: Have a discussion of how to multiply and divide decimals with whole numbers as learned in Unit 4. Extension: Have students write their own problems, switch with a partner, and solve theirs. Participation Structures (group, partners, individual, other): The students should work individually.

12 Lesson Series #1 12 Lesson Series Overview: This lesson series begins with the use of base 10 blocks to model multiplication of decimals. It continues on with the practice of multiplication of decimals, while students begin to notice how factors affect an answer. Students will also practice decimal placement in multiplication problems, and see scaling effects on multiplication products. On daily exit slips, students work on noticing errors in example calculations. In preparation for the Apprentice Task, students work to find different ways to complete a CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7, 5.NF.5a, 5.NF.5b Time: 4 days Lesson Overview Day 1 Description of Lesson: Students work in pairs to use base ten blocks to build rectangles that model the multiplication of decimals. To prepare to teach this lesson, read the BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE: Representing decimal multiplication with base ten blocks portion of the Georgia Department of Education lesson (see Resources). When making rectangles to represent decimal multiplication, you are actually using the length and the width of each block to represent the factors. Therefore, a flat is actually 1 unit by 1 unit, a long is 1 unit by 0.1 unit, and a unit block is 0.1 unit by 0.1 unit (area model). The lesson should begin with a discussion of the area model of multiplication: the lengths of the sides of the rectangle are the factors in the problem; the area of the rectangle is the product. As a class, practice with the problem 3.2 * 2.4, filling in the area with base ten blocks and finding the product. Make sure to clarify that the area of the Then have students work in pairs to solve the other problems on the sheet. Some students may need to use the blocks all day. Encourage these students to draw the rectangles after building it. Others may be able to use drawings only. There may be some who notice a structure to the problems building off the work in Unit 5.4 who may not need to draw out the rectangles. Students should be able to support their answers with the area model whether or not they use it to solve every problem.

13 13 Lesson Overview Day 2 Description of Lesson: Students work individually or in pairs to try to make the largest number possible by going through a number maze. They use the properties of multiplication to make their number larger, at the same time noticing how different factors affect the result. Be sure to do all three portions of the lesson to help students get full understanding from this activity. 1. Whole Class: Write the problem (as described next) on the chalkboard or overhead. Ask students to discuss what they notice. Lead a discussion that focuses on these key points: In computing the product of 4.5 and 1.2, a student carefully lined up the decimals and then multiplied, bringing the decimal point straight down and reporting a product of Reflection on the answer should have caused the student to realize the product was too big. Multiplying 4.5 by a number slightly greater than 1 produces an answer a little more than 4.5. Instead, this student applied an incorrect procedure (line up the decimals in the factors and bring the decimal point straight down) and did not reflect on whether the resulting answer was reasonable. Tell students that they will be playing a game to practice decimal multiplication and its effects. Encourage students to trace several paths through the maze while always looking for the path that will yield the greatest increase in the calculator's display. Maze Scaling Directions Maze Scaling Multiplication Multiplication Error Analysis Resources Homework: Key to Decimals, Book 2: Adding, Subtracting and Multiplying, pp Individual/pairs/groups: (depending on how many calculators you have available) Give each student a calculator and a copy of the Maze Scaling Activity - Multiplication activity sheet. Students are to choose a path through the maze. To begin, have the students enter 100 on their calculator. For each segment chosen on the maze, the students should key in the assigned operation and number. The goal is to choose a path that results in the largest value at the finish of the maze. Students may not retrace a path or move upward in the maze. In pairs or in groups of three, students should discuss their strategies (after playing the game) and what worked best for them. 2. Whole Class: As a class, discuss what happens to your total when you multiply by various numbers on the maze, greater and less than one. Guide them to notice when the product is larger or smaller than the target factor. Possible follow-up activities include finding the path that leads to the smallest finish number or finding a path that leads to a finish number as near the start number (100) as possible. 3.

Probe with questions like: How did you get your answer? How do you know your answer is correct? What patterns are you noticing? Do you have all the possibilities? How do you know? When students believe they have all the possibilities (you may want to check), they should write a paragraph answering these questions: How did you find your solutions? How do you know you have all the possibilities? Have students share out their solutions and how they proved the number sentence made sense. Students should try to find as many solutions as possible and to share strategies with the class as to how they came up with their solution.

16 Apprentice Task Missing Numbers What will students do? 16 Mathematics Objectives and Standards Framing Student Experience Math Objectives: Students will efficiently solve multiplication problems with decimals. Students will strategically find a missing factor. CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7 Potential Misconceptions: Multiplication can increase or decrease a number. From previous work with computing whole numbers, students understand that the product of multiplication is greater than the factors. However, multiplication can have a reducing effect when multiplying a positive number by a decimal less than one or multiplying two decimal numbers together. We need to put the term multiplying into a context with which we can identify and which will then make the situation meaningful. Also using the terms times and groups of interchangeably can assist with the contextual understanding. Background Knowledge If students use their prior knowledge about whole number multiplication, they will realize that the products will have the exact same digits, but the decimal placement will change the value of the numbers. If students are methodical about their solution strategy, they will be able to find all of the possibilities systematically from 0.0 x 0.5 = 0.00 to 1.9 x 0.5 = Materials: Calculators (optional) This task will allow the teacher to assess students learning in the last lesson series: multiplying decimals by decimals. It also gives students an opportunity to problem solve in a pure number situation, applying what they know about the properties of numbers and the multiplication operation. In this task, students are challenged to find all the possibilities for missing numbers in a decimal multiplication number sentence, and to write the equations they find. Essential Questions: How can we efficiently solve multiplication and division problems with decimals? How can we multiply and divide decimals fluently? What strategies are effective for finding a missing factor or divisor? Launch: Math Talk: (For the structure of a Math Talk, see the Math Teaching Toolkit.) * 4 = What numbers could go in the blanks? Explain that today we ll be doing a similar problem in pairs:. * 0.5 = 0. During: Students work in pairs to find as many options as possible to fill the blanks. Encourage students to seek out rules or patterns that will help them find multiple possibilities and determine whether they have all the possibilities. Be sure students write out the equations they come up with. Probe with questions like: How did you get your answer? How do you know your answer is correct? What patterns are you noticing? Do you have all the possibilities? How do you know? When students believe they have all the possibilities (you may want to check), they should write a paragraph answering these questions: How did you find your solutions? How do you know you have all the possibilities? Closure/Extension: Gather as a group and collect all the possibilities. Discuss patterns that students noticed and strategies used to find all possibilities.

Structures for Student Learning: Academic Language Support: Vocabulary: factors, product Sentence frames: I started by worked because didn t work because I know we got all the possibilities because Differentiation Strategies: Extension: Students can explore further problems like this, finding missing numbers when multiplying by a number with decimals. For example: o. * 1.5 =. Intervention: Provide students with examples with one whole number before using two decimal factors. Include some examples that only have one solution before moving to multiple solutions. Also, calculators can be used for this task. Students can use digit cards to generate random numbers to try. Participation Structures (group, partners, individual, other): Students work in pairs.

18 Lesson Series #2 18 Lesson Series Overview: This lesson series begins with the use of base ten blocks to model division of decimals. It continues on with practice of both multiplication and division of decimals, using their knowledge of scaling to find the highest answer. Students will also practice magnitude estimates before calculating quotients. Finally, students will show their proficiency in both multiplication and division of decimals by identifying errors and correcting them in student work samples.

This focuses on finding a missing factor in a multiplication problem. As a class, practice with the two problems demonstrated in the Background Knowledge section. The first, 3.6 : 1.2, has students make groups of 1.2 and figure out how many of those can be made with a set of 3.6. The second, 4.83 : 2.1, has students make a rectangle with one side of 2.1 and find the length of the other side. Then have students work in pairs to solve the other problems on the sheet. Some students may need to use the blocks all day. Encourage these students to draw the rectangle or groups after building. Others may be able to use drawings only.

Focus student thinking by asking: What happens when we divide a decimal by a decimal? How can we check for errors in division of decimals? When students have found all errors, they should find the correct solution using two methods. Then they should write a paragraph explaining what the student did wrong, and the steps they need to take next time to find the correct solution.

22 Expert Task Sewing A Quilt What will students do? 22 Mathematics Objectives and Standards Math Objectives: Students will efficiently solve division problems with decimals. Students will use magnitude estimates and divisibility rules to find decimal divisors and quotients. Students will use an area model to model division of decimals. CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7 Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to the hundredths. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used. Potential Misconceptions: The area of a rectangle is found by multiplying length and width. Students have experience with area from Grades 3 and 4, as well as in this unit (area models for multiplication and division). The relationship between multiplication and division can be modeled through fact families: a * b = c, b * a = c, c/a = b, c/b = a Essential Questions: How can we efficiently solve multiplication and division problems with decimals? How can we multiply and divide decimals fluently? What strategies are effective for finding a missing factor or divisor? Framing Student Experience Background Knowledge Students use their conceptual understanding of division to partition whole numbers (Unit 5.1) and decimals (Unit 5.4) by whole numbers. Students also examine the relationship between multiplication and division in 4th grade. In this unit, students use the Base 10 area model to show multiplication and division of decimals. With the given dividend, students use their understanding of the area mode and arrays to construct a rectangle with an area of They will also use their understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division to determine the correlation between factors & products and divisor, quotient & dividend in relationship to area and arrays. Launch: Math Talk: Building Arrays with 48 Squares Have students discuss different strategies for building an array using 48 squares. Explain that students will use those same whole number strategies to figure out the dimensions for quilt. During: Students work in pairs or small groups to determine the dimensions for a quilt that has an area of 5.76 square meters. Encourage students to examine divisibility rules, fact families relationships and the base ten area model for division. Students provide an explanation of their thinking using words and visual representations. Closure/Extension: Gather as a group to discuss strategies and possible dimensions. Discuss how we can use multiplication as a method for checking our division work. Ask: How did you get your answer? How do you know your answer is correct? What strategies did you try? Which ones were effective? Which were not?

Sewing A Quilt How will students do this? Differentiation Strategies: Extension: Have students find as many possible dimensions as they can. Intervention: Calculators can be used for this task. Provide students with Divisibility Rules (Student Reference Book p 11) Participation Structures (group, partners, individual, other): Students can work in pairs or triads.

24 Lesson Series #3 24 Lesson Series Overview: In this lesson series, students will determine the distance, fuel costs, and time a road trip through the Western United States will take, given the cost of fuel, and the number of kilometers per gallon the family car gets. Students will be able to demonstrate their proficiency with multiplication and division of decimals by decimals. CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7, 5.NF.5a, 5.NF.5b Time: 3 days Lesson Overview Day 1 Description of Lesson: Road Trip (modified from Georgia) This is a three-day group activity. Introduce the lesson by discussing what a family road trip is all about. How families will plan where to go, and try to figure out how much it will cost. Tell students they will plan a road trip with their partners. Handout road trip recording sheet. Students should select five cities to visit during their road trip. San Francisco should be the beginning and ending hometown. Use Everyday Mathematics Student Reference book p. 388 to select cities in the Western United States. Resources Georgia Department of Education Fifth Grade Mathematics Unit 3 pp (reference only) Everyday Mathematics Student Reference Book p. 388 Road Trip Recording Sheet Road Trip Teacher Reference Homework: Word Problesm Key to Decimals, Book 3: Dividing p. 42 After determining the miles between their cities, groups need to convert miles to kilometers (multiply by 1.6). Tell students that their car will travel 9.6 kilometers on one gallon of gasoline, and their car can hold 19.7 gallons of gasoline. Gasoline will cost $4.09 per gallon for the entire trip. Read all of the questions together with the class to be sure everyone understands what they are being asked to do for each question. Clarify any directions that students do not understand. Let students know that if their calculations lead to numbers with places beyond the hundredths, they should round to the hundredths place. Allow groups to work together today, and the next 2 days to complete the task.

25 25 Notes: Students should only select 1 city per day, do not allow them to travel through cities to get to their final day s destination. (e.g., Do not go S.F. to Denver. Day 1; they should go S.F. to Las Vegas. Then Day 2 they would go Las Vegas to Denver.) Modifications: Have students make calculations for one city at a time. Allow groups to select less than five cities as appropriate. Have students use calculators to check their calculations. Give students copies of tables provided on teacher reference sheet. Extension: Have groups who finish all questions create a poster representing their road trip. *A car would usually have a higher rate than 9.6 kilometers per gallon. However, in order to keep the divisor a two-digit number, a low rate was selected. Description of Lesson: See Day 1 description of the lesson. Notes: See Day 1 notes.

26 Milestone Task CLA2: Road Trip! and Constructed Responses What will students do? 26 Mathematics Objectives and Standards Math Objectives: Students will efficiently solve multiplication problems with decimals. CCSS-M Standards Addressed: 5.NBT.7, 5.NF.5a, 5.NF.5b Potential Misconceptions When multiplying the product is always larger than both factors: This misconception should be familiar to students from their work multiplying fractions by whole numbers in fourth grade and from work during Lesson Series 1. When one (or more) of the factors is less than one, the product will be less than the other factor. When dividing the quotient is always smaller than the dividend: this misconception should be familiar to students from their work in lesson series 2. When the divisor is smaller than 1, the quotient will be larger than the dividend. Framing Student Experience Launch: Remind students of their work in Lesson Series 3 calculating the number of kilometers traveled, the gas consumed, and the cost of gas. Today they will solve one set of problems using this context, plus three stand alone problems: a multiplication problem, a division problem, and a find the error problem (as they did in lesson series 1 and 2). During: Students work independently to solve the problems. They may use any of the tools that they worked with during this unit. Closure/Extension: When all students have finished, you may decide to review the answers as a group.
