Unit Fraction Multiples Multiplying Whole Numbers Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. The Unit Fraction Multiples Multiplying Whole Numbers learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 4.NF.B.4.b as written in the common core national math standards.

Apply previous understanding of multiplication that 3 x 7 can be represented as the number of objects in 3 groups of 7 objects, and write this as 7 + 7 + 7 to the multiplication of a fraction by a whole number. See a fraction as a whole number multiplied by the unit fraction with the same denominator. All fractions are a composition of their unit fraction. Unit fractions, or fractions with a numerator of 1, are formed by partitioning a whole into equal parts and taking one part. Unit fractions are the basic building block of all fractions. Multiply a whole number and a fraction by using the reasoning of the whole number multiplier as groups of the fraction to be added together.
