Multiply Fractions Digital & Printable Resource Pack - Visual Models Included
Use visual models and area models along with the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to multiply fractions and multiply mixed numbers using this comprehensive digital and printable resource pack.
Using visual models and area models, students will have a more hands-on approach to “see” what it looks like when multiplying fractions and mixed numbers in addition to using the standard algorithm. It’s great for kinesthetic learners as well as students that may struggle with memorizing algorithms.
This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep, easy to assign to a sub, and contains engaging printable activities and digital versions for use with Google Classroom. If your students are struggling conceptually, this resource is for you!
Standards: 5.NF.4, 5.NF.4a, 5.NF.4b, 5.NF.6
How Can You Use This?
Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems. I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and displaying the PDF or pulling the slides up on a Smartboard if you’re in person or share the screen online if you’re teaching virtually.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages or slides activities. Check for understanding and mastery after teaching each skill using the exit tickets.
When all skills have been taught, assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fabulous resource that includes everything needed to teach these standards! This is a one stop shop and makes preparing for notes, rotations, and differentiation a breeze. - Sarah M.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed this product. It was challenging for some of my students to understand how to show visually multiplying with fractions. This product helped them improve on it. It was also good to give to students that missed the instruction due to an absence. It made good notes for them to reference. Thank you! - Mandy L.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This bundle was worth every penny! My kids understand models well after using this resource! Thank you so much! - Lauren M.
