Learning Objectives

Students will be able to write and solve word problems that require the multiplication of fractions by whole numbers.

  • The teacher gave some word problem to students.
  • students talked with each other about how they would solve this word problem.
  • The teacher called  on some students to share how they would solve the problem.
  • Today, students were learning how to multiply fractions by whole numbers. They also wrote their own word problems that require this type of math.

Independent Working Time

The teacher:

  • Handed out lined paper to each student.
  • Explained that students will be writing their own word problems that involve multiplying a fraction by a whole number.
  • When they finished, students solved their word problem at the bottom.
  • Encouraged students to use the «key terms» list on the board to help them as they write their word problems.
  • Circulated the room to ensure that students’ word problems require multiplication of fractions and whole numbers.
  • When they finished, students could share their word problems for their classmates to solve.
  • Encouraged students to be creative with their word problems!

The most important thing

  • Students simplified their answers after solving the problem. 
  • The teacher gave these students sentence stems to help them write their word problem.

    I like it so much how they work . Here in Tenerife is different because the maths problems resolve all together and there they resolve them by their own.
