In previous lessons, students used the properties of operations to write equivalent expressions in order to find products of fractions greater than 1 written as mixed numbers.
In this lesson, students apply their understanding of the properties of operations to multiply whole numbers and fractions greater than 1 written as mixed numbers. In each activity, encourage students to think flexibly, using everything they have learned about fraction decomposition, multiplication, and the properties of operations.
- Multiply whole numbers and fractions using the properties of operations.
- Let’s multiply mixed numbers.
