Would you rather have 4 Oreos, or 4 x 1/4 Oreos?


This week in math we are learning how to predict the outcome of a multiplication problem by looking at the factors. When fractions are involved it's easy to decide if the product will be greater than or less than the original number.



If you would like to watch a very helpful video about this concept, go to Learn Zillion and type the code below into the search box.

Code: LZ3401

Here is another look at my notebook pages from this lesson. Check your work to make sure your answers are correct and your notebook is complete. You can click on the images to enlarge them.

If you were not able to finish your Quick Check in class, please k-mail your answers to me. I need a completed 5.NF.5 Quick Check from every student by Friday!

Many of your answers for the last question made me giggle. Here are a few of my favorites (click on the images to enlarge)...
