Lesson 23 – Fractions – Multiplying mixed number fractions by whole numbers

LO: To be able to multiply mixed number fractions by whole numbers.

SC1. I can consider which strategy is the best when solving a number problem.

SC2. I can use repeated addition.

SC3. I can convert a mixed number into an improper fraction.

SC4. I can solve number problems.

At the end of the last term we were looking at how to multiply fractions by whole numbers. We focussed on multiplying unit and proper fractions by whole numbers. Today, we will use the knowledge we gained from those lessons to help us multiply mixed number fractions by whole numbers.

There are two main strategies for solving this type of problem:

1)      Use repeated addition to solve the problem

2)      Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction and then solve

I have put together a PowerPoint and a video to help with today’s learning. You will find questions and their answers at the bottom of the class page..
