Previous Standard 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.
Next Standard Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷4 = 1/12 because (1/12) ×4 = 1/3.
Number and Operations—Fractions Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions. 6Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
