Multiplication and Division of
Fractions: Standards Progression
4.NF.4 Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to
multiply a fraction by a whole number.
c. Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a
whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations
to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party
will eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at
the party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between

and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations
to represent the problem.

• David spent 2/5 of his money on a
storybook. The storybook cost \$20. How
much money did he have at first?

Let’s Look at Some Sample
Problems
Solve the problems on pages 20 and
21(from Singapore Mathematics 4A) with
complicated fraction word problems?
Now solve the problems on pp. 24-25 by
drawing tape diagrams.

Comparing Performance on TIMMS
• Laura had \$240. She spent 5/8 of it. How much
money did she have left?
Singapore 78%, United States 25%
• Penny had a bag of marbles. She gave one-third of
them to Rebecca and then one-fourth of the
remaining marbles to John. Penny then had 24
marbles left in the bag. How many marbles were
Singapore 81%, United States 14%

Sense Making….
• Share with your shoulder partner a few
ideas that struck you as critical to
developing a sound understanding of
multiplication of fractions.

The power of strip diagrams
With the aid of simple strip diagrams,
children can use straightforward reasoning
to solve many challenging story problems
conceptually.

Big Ideas
A Focus on Fractions
• Multiplication and division of fractions are among the
most complicated fraction concepts that elementary
students encounter.
• Instructional opportunities that students encounter
should include the meaning of multiplication and division
in a range of situations and build procedural fluency with
understanding.
Common Core Leadership in Mathematics Project, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 2012 - 2013
The School Problem
• There are 3 ½ times as many fifth graders at
School A as School B. There are 115 more
students at School A than at School B. How
many students are there at each school?
problem.

Standards for Mathematical Practice
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments & critique reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Use Appropriate Tools Strategically
List 3 specific examples for:
– Student Disposition: What did you do as
students that illustrate this practice?
– Teacher Actions: What experiences and
opportunities did the teachers provide to
foster the desired student dispositions?
