Fractions – traditionally hard to teach and harder to learn – but not with TeachTransform’s 5th Grade Fractions: Multiplication & Division. In whole group and small group instruction as well as centers, students learn to interpret fractions as a different way to write division. They create models to multiply fractions and mixed numbers, and explore the size of products and journal their discoveries. They model division of unit fractions and whole numbers and explore patterns in muliplication and divison to find their connections. Perfect for guided math. 

Silly characters and contexts keep students interested and develop problem solving grit. Students go on a picnic with ants, chase the bad guy at the Castle Axon, and go to the worst restaurant on the moon.
This book includes activities for the whole class, small groups, centers, intervention, and guided math that build the academic language of fractions.

Each activity includes:

  • CCSS
  • Setting Up for Instruction
  • How-To Guide with full teacher directions including questions
  • Thought Extender Questions to help students get ‘unstuck’ and focus on the math concepts
  • Answer Key
  • Content explanations to deepen teacher understanding of fraction concepts
  • Instruction extras to support implementation of instructional strategies

Tutoring & Intervention

5th Grade Fractions: Multiplication & Division activities can be used for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instruction in 5th grade and to help 6th graders review fraction operations. Are some students struggling with the basics? The activities in 4th-5th Grade Fractions: Foundations can be used to catch 5th graders up on simplifying and finding equivalent fractions and fill in gaps without loss of rigor or time. Do your 5th graders need to review multiplying whole numbers and fractions? Use Mr. Haroo’s Zoo or Rude Awakening from 4th Grade Fractions: Operations to fill gaps and catch them up.

Instructional Alignment from Grades 2–5

Not only is the content aligned among the grades, but the instructional strategies are too. For students who are “growing up” with TeachTransform’s instructional materials, you can expect them, with a little prompting, to give an answer that includes a why, to use sentences to explain their thinking, to question each other in small groups. This lightens the instructional and cognitive load in each grade and leads to mastery.
