Investigate

Martin is planting a vegetable garden. Each row is two meters long. He wants to plant carrots along $$\frac{3}{4}$$ of each row. How many meters of each row will he plant with carrots?

Multiply. $$\frac{3}{4}$$ Ã— 2
Materials; fraction strips; MathBoard

A. Place two 1-whole fraction strips side-by-side to represent the length of the garden.

B. Find 4 fraction strips all with the same denominator that fit exactly under the two wholes.

C. Draw a picture of your model. ____________________

D. Circle $$\frac{3}{4}$$ of 2 on the model you drew.

E. Complete the number sentence. $$\frac{3}{4}$$ Ã— 2 = _________
So, Martin will plant carrots along _________ meters of each row.

Multiply (3/4) Ã— 2
A. Place two 1-whole fraction strips side-by-side to represent the length of the garden.
B. Find 4 fraction strips all with the same denominator that fit exactly under the two wholes.
C. Draw a picture of our model.

D. Circle 3/4 of 2 on the model we drew.
E. Complete the number sentence.
(3/4) Ã— 2 = 6/4 = 3/2 or 1(1/2)
So, Martin will plant carrots along 1(1/2) meters of each row.

Draw Conclusions

Question 1.
Explain why you placed four fraction strips with me the same denominator under the two 1-whole strips.
I wanted to divide the entire length of the two wholes into four equal parts. The 4, 1/2 fractions strips did that.

Explain how you would model $$\frac{3}{10}$$ of 2?
I could divide the two wholes into ten equal parts using 10, 1/5 fraction strips. I would circle 3/10 of the 1/5 strips. This would equal 3/5.

You can also use a model to multiply a fraction by a whole number.

Margo was helping clean up after a class party. There were 3 boxes remaining with pizza in them. Each box had $$\frac{3}{8}$$ of a pizza left. How much pizza was left in all?
Materials; fraction circles
STEP 1: Find 3 Ã— $$\frac{3}{8}$$. Model three 1-whole fraction circles to represent the number of boxes containing pizza.

STEP 2: Place $$\frac{1}{8}$$ fraction circle pieces on each circle to represent the amount of pizza that was left in each box. Shade the fraction circles below to show your model.

Each circle shows ________ eighths of a whole.
The 3 circles show ________ eighths of a whole.

STEP 3: Complete the number sentences.
$$\frac{3}{8}$$ + $$\frac{3}{8}$$ + $$\frac{3}{8}$$ = ____________
3 Ã— $$\frac{3}{8}$$ = ____________
So, Margo had __________ boxes of pizza left.
STEP 1: Find 3 Ã— 3/8. Model three 1-whole fraction circles to represent the number of boxes containing pizza.
STEP 2: Place 1/8 fraction circle pieces on each circle to represent the amount of pizza that was left in each box. Shade the fraction circles below to show your model.

Each circle shows 3 eighths of a whole.
The 3 circles show 9 eighths of a whole.
STEP 3: Complete the number sentences.
3/8 + 3/8 + 3/8 = 9/8
3 Ã— 3/8 = 9/8
So, Margo had 9/8 or 1(1/8) boxes of pizza left.

Question 3.
Tarique drew the model below for a problem. Write 2 problems that can be solved using this model. One of your problems should involve multiplying a whole number by a fraction and the other problem should involve multiplying a fraction by a whole number.

Pose a problem.

Explanation:
Pose a problem:
1. A gardener is planting flowers in 6 rows of the garden. He will plant 2/5 of the 6 rows with 6 roses. How many rows will be filled with roses.
2. A gardener planted 2/5 of a row with roses. If he plants 5 more rows like first row, how many rows of roses will there be. When all the 6 rows are planted.
