1 Unit Number and Operations Fractions: Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Introduction In this unit, students will divide whole numbers and interpret the answer as a fraction instead of with a remainder. They will multiply fractions (including improper fractions and mixed numbers), divide fractions by whole numbers, and divide whole numbers by unit fractions. Students will also solve realworld problems and use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to compare, estimate mentally, and assess the reasonableness of answers. The realworld problems involve addition and subtraction of fractions, multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, division of unit fractions by nonzero whole numbers, and division of whole numbers by unit fractions. A note about division. Division with remainders is only used when dividing whole numbers by whole numbers. When they are dividing decimals by whole numbers or by decimals, do not ask students to decide for themselves what to do when the corresponding whole number division leaves a remainder. To deal with this situation, students need to know that they can continue the dividend by writing zeros after the decimal point. This technique is not taught in this course because it leads to the concept of repeating decimals, which is not required in Grade. Please note in particular that it is not true that = R, even though the corresponding whole number division is 7 = R. If anything, the remainder would be 0.. However, the convention is that remainders are only used when dividing whole numbers by whole numbers (although decimal answers can also be used, as in 7 =.). Preparation. Cut out the fraction pieces (wholes, halves, thirds, and fourths) from BLM Fraction Parts and Wholes (pp. M6 9). You will need them in Lessons NF and NF. Keep the pieces sorted according to their size to facilitate distribution to students. COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED. CC EDITION Number and Operations Fractions M

Vocabulary division fraction improper fraction mixed number unit fraction PRIOR KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED Understands division as equal sharing Can convert an improper fraction to a mixed number Can draw pictures representing proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers Sharing one object among friends. SAY: Two friends want to share one pie. Draw the circle in the margin on the board. Draw a vertical diameter, and while you are shading one half, SAY: Each friend gets half of the pie. Write the fraction / beside the picture, as shown below. Draw another circle on the board and ASK: If three friends want to share this pie, how many pieces would there be? () Divide the pie into three pieces and ask a volunteer to shade a piece and write the fraction / in stack form, as in the margin. SAY: This is an example of a unit fraction. When one thing is being shared equally, the result is a unit fraction. Remind students that we use division for equal sharing for example, if three friends share apples equally, each friend gets = apples. SAY: You can use division for equal sharing, and this applies whether the answer is a whole number or a fraction. For example, if two friends share a pie equally, each friend gets / of the pie, so = /. Exercises: Shade how much each person gets and then write the fraction. Four people share a pancake Six people share a pizza. Three people share a chocolate bar Sample answer: 6 Sharing more than one object.

3 Point out that you are drawing circles for pies. ASK: How many circles should I draw? () Draw the three circles on the board and then SAY: They decide to share each pie equally. ASK: How many pieces should I divide each circle into? () Divide the pies and then have a volunteer shade the amount that one person gets, as shown in the margin. Four people are sharing three whole pies, so one person will take the shaded pieces. Exercises: Describe the number of pieces and the number of pies. people share pies people share pies people share pies d) people share pies Answers: pieces in each pie and whole pies, pieces in each pie and whole pies, pieces in each pie and whole pies, d) pieces in each pie and whole pies Exercises: For the previous exercises, draw a picture to show how much one person gets. Sample answer: Each person gets / of a pie. Using division for equal sharing with a fraction for the answer. ASK: If two people share six pies, how much does each person get? ( pies) Write on the board: people share 6 pies people share pies 6 = = Ask a volunteer to fill in the blanks ( = /) and have students signal whether they agree (thumbs up) or disagree (thumbs down). Point out that the number of objects being divided goes first in the equation, and the number of people sharing goes second. The answer is how much each person gets. Point out also that now the answer is a fraction. COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED. CC EDITION Have a volunteer write the division equation to show seven friends sharing two pies.

Review multiplying a fraction by a whole number. 9 = ( 9) = (MP.) = 6 Exercises: Use multiplication to check the answer. = = 7 = 7 Selected solution: / = / = Extensions. When you divide granola bars among four people, you divide items among four groups. If you calculate, the answer you get represents the number of items in each group. total number of items number of groups = number of items in each group = Number of items We make groups because there are people Each person gets whole items Plus / of an item In general, when the divisor (in this case ) is the number of groups, the answer is the number of items in each group or the size of the group. However, when the divisor is the size of the group, the answer is the number of groups of that size. For example: if you cut m of rope into m pieces, how many pieces can you make? COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED. CC EDITION whole pieces of meters in length meters left over ( meters is / of meters) As the diagram above shows, the whole number () in the answer tells you how many pieces of m each (or groups each made of four m pieces) can be made (here two groups). The fraction in the answer (/) does not mean that you have / of a meter left over, but instead means that you have / of the thing you were dividing by left over. The thing you are dividing by is m long, so you have / of m left over. (/ of m is m, which is exactly how much rope is left over.) Ask students to draw a picture to interpret the quotient as the number of groups. ASK: What does the fraction part of the answer mean? 7 = = Number and Operations Fractions 0 M

Write on the board: ASK: How can I divide a mixed number by a whole number? If some students say that you can divide the whole part and the fractional part separately and then consider both parts together, suggest instead that they use a method with which they have a lot of experience: convert the mixed number to an improper fraction. SAY: Yes, that s right but it is easier to use a wellknown method. You know how to divide an improper fraction by a whole number, so you can change the mixed number to an improper fraction and then divide the improper fraction by a whole number. Write on the board and describe the steps in each line: Change the mixed number to an improper fraction. ( + ) = Divide the improper fraction by the whole number, which means multiplying the denominator by the whole number. ( ) = = SAY: In the last step, if the answer was an improper fraction, you can change the improper fraction to a mixed number. Write on the board: = 7 = R 7 COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED.

What is her mistake? COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED. CC EDITION (MP.) Answer: Anna divided both the numerator and the denominator by. The correct answer is 6/7 or /9.. Teach students a shortcut to divide when the numerator is a multiple of the whole number being divided by. For example, show them this equation: 6 sevenths = sevenths Then change the sevenths to other words to show what is the same within the equation. For example: 6 apples = apples Number and Operations Fractions 7 M7
28 Have students divide and write the fraction notation for the division equation. fifths = fifths ninths = ninths thirds = thirds d) fifths = fifths Answers: / = /, /9 = /9, / = /, d) / = /. You can divide improper fractions by whole numbers using the same rule that you used to divide proper fractions by whole numbers. Draw a picture to show why this works to divide. (MP.) Use the distributive property to divide mixed numbers by whole numbers. For example: = + = ( ) + = + 6 = = 6 = 6 (MP.) Investigate with several examples to check whether you get the same answers both ways: by changing to improper fractions AND by using the distributive property. = + = ( ) + = + = + = = COPYRIGHT 0 JUMP MATH: NOT TO BE COPIED.
