# Multiplying and Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Using Multiple Models

Chapter

K-12

Fall 2023

## Description / Abstract

This lesson is based on the study of Multiplying and Dividing Fractions using multiple representations, and the subsequent application of these concepts to real-life situations. In this lesson, we demonstrate/model multiplication and division of fractions (proper or improper) and mixed numbers using multiple models. We solve single-step and multistep practical problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with and without models. The sum, difference, product, and quotient of fraction and mixed number problems are determined. We also determine the sum and difference of fraction, mixed number, and fraction, division, and product of mixed numbers. This lesson focuses on the use of models to solve practical problems that involve addition and subtraction with fractions, with and with regrouping, that include like and unlike denominators of 12 or less.Technology is used to create, adapt, and personalize learning experiences that foster independent learning and accommodate learner differences and needs, which promote critical and/or creative thinking. The student uses assessment in a sophisticated manner to monitor the progress of individual students and provide high-quality continuous and specific formative and summative feedback aligned with the instructional outcomes in both content and process.
