Unit Overview

Introduction
This unit bundles student expectations that address examining problem situations involving whole numbers, fractions, and decimals, discerning the necessary operations needed to solve the problems, and verifying and/or justifying the solutions. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, a problem-solving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this Unit
In Grade 4, students represented and solved addition and subtraction of fractions with equal denominators using objects and pictorial models that build to the number line and properties of operations and evaluated the reasonableness of sums and differences of fractions using benchmark fractions 0, 1 Fourth, 1 half, 3 fourths.png, and 1, referring to the same whole. In Grade 5 Units 01 – 07, students explored extending whole number operations to include using algebraic reasoning, extended place value understandings to the thousandths place, and divided and multiplied decimals to the hundredths place. Students added and subtracted fractions with unequal denominators, multiplied a fraction by a whole number, and divided a unit fraction by a whole number and whole number by a unit fraction.

During this Unit
Students revisit representing and solving problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with unequal denominators referring to the same whole using objects and pictorial models and properties of operations. Students also solve addition and subtraction situations involving positive rational numbers. Students revisit representing and solving problems involving the multiplication of a whole number and a fraction that refers to the same whole using objects and pictorial models, including area models. Students continue multiplication as they solve for products of decimals to the hundredths, including situations involving money, using strategies based on place-value understandings, properties of operations, and the relationship of decimal multiplication to the multiplication of whole numbers. Students revisit division as they solve for quotients of decimals to the hundredths, up to four-digit dividends and two-digit whole number divisors, using strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm. They divide whole numbers by unit fractions and unit fractions by whole numbers. Students continue to simplify numerical expressions that do not involve exponents, including up to two levels of grouping.

After this Unit
In Grade 6, students will be expected to multiply and divide positive rational numbers fluently. Students will determine, with and without computation, whether a quantity is increased or decreased when multiplied by a fraction, including values greater than or less than one. They will also generate equivalent numerical expressions and determine if two expressions are equivalent through the use of properties of operations and prime factorization.

Additional Notes
In Grade 5, solving for products of decimals to the hundredths, solving for quotients of decimals, adding and subtracting positive rational numbers fluently, and dividing whole numbers by unit fractions and unit fractions by whole numbers are identified as STAAR Readiness Standards 5.3E, 5.3G, 5.3K, and 5.3L. Representing and solving multiplication of a whole number and a fraction that refers to the same whole using objects and pictorial models, including area models is identified as STAAR Supporting Standard 5.3I. All of these standards are subsumed within the Grade 5 STAAR Reporting Category 2: Computations and Algebraic Relationships and the Grade 5 Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points (TxRCFP): Developing an understanding of and fluency with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions and decimals. Simplifying numerical expressions is identified as STAAR Readiness Standard 5.4F and subsumed within the Grade 5 STAAR Reporting Category 1: Numerical Representations and Relationships and Grade 5 Focal Point: Understanding and generating expressions and equations to solve problems (TxRCFP). This is furthering the development of the Texas College and Career Readiness Standards (TxCCRS): I. Numeric Reasoning, VIII. Problem Solving and Reasoning, IX. Communication and Representation, X. Connections.

Research
According to Van de Walle, Karp, and Bay-Williams (2004) in regards for the need to connect fractions and decimals, “Linking the ideas of fractions to decimals can be extremely useful, both from a pedagogical view as well as a practical, social view.” (pg. 280). He goes on to state that “decimal numbers are simply another way of writing fractions. Both notations have value. Maximum flexibility is gained by understanding how the two symbol systems are related.” (p. 280). Fosnot and Dolk (2002) add, “Once children develop a sense of landmark fractions like 1 fourth.png, 1 half.png, and 3 fourths.png and know the decimal equivalents, using them interchangeably is a powerful strategy. For example, 75 × 80 can easily be solved by thinking of the problem as 3 fourths.png × 80. You only have to remember to compensate for the decimal answer (multiply 60 by 100, because you treated 75 as 75 one hundreths.png)” (p.125).

MISCONCEPTIONS / UNDERDEVELOPED CONCEPTS

Underdeveloped Concepts:

  • Some students may have a procedural understanding of the standard algorithms for addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division while lacking conceptual understanding of the operations.
  • Some students may think that when subtracting mixed numbers, the whole numbers and fractions can be subtracted separately rather than thinking about the fraction as part of the numbers (e.g., For 2 – 1, students may think 2 – 1 = 1 and = , so 2 – 1 = 1).
  • Some students may think the dividend always goes on the left side of a division sentence rather than understanding where to place the dividend and divisor based on the symbol being used in long division.
  • Some students may be able to perform a symbolic procedure for decimal multiplication or division with limited understanding of the multiplication or division concepts involved.
  • Some students may think that when you multiply with fractions, the product is always larger as in whole numbers rather than seeing the reverse is true for quantities less than one.
  • Some students may think that when you divide with fractions, the quotient is always smaller as in whole numbers rather than seeing the reverse is true for quantities less than one.
  • Some students may not realize that the properties of numbers apply to fractions (e.g., associative, commutative, and distributive properties).
  • Some students may not understand that “a third” of something is the same as dividing by three (e.g., 1 over 3 of 30 = 30 ÷ 3).
  • Some students may think that dividing "by one half” (e.g., 6 ÷ = 12) is the same as dividing "in half” (e.g., 6 ÷ 2 = 3).

Unit Vocabulary

  • Associative property of multiplication – if three or more factors are multiplied, they can be grouped in any order, and the product will remain the same; a × b × c = (a × b) × c = a × (b × c)
  • Commutative property of multiplication – if the order of the factors are changed, the product will remain the same; a × b = c; therefore, b × a = c
  • Counting (natural) numbers – the set of positive numbers that begins at one and increases by increments of one each time {1, 2, 3, ..., n}
  • Decimal number – a number in the base-10 place value system used to represent a quantity that may include part of a whole and is recorded with a decimal point separating the whole from the part
  • Denominator – the part of a fraction written below the fraction bar that tells the total number of equal parts in a whole or set
  • Distributive property of multiplication – if multiplying a number by a sum of numbers, the product will be the same as multiplying the number by each addend and then adding the products together; a × (b + c) = (a × b) + (a × c)
  • Dividend – the number that is being divided
  • Divisor – the number the dividend is being divided by
  • Expression – a mathematical phrase, with no equal sign or comparison symbol, that may contain a number(s), an unknown(s), and/or an operator(s)
  • Factor – a number multiplied by another number to find a product
  • Fluency – efficient application of procedures with accuracy
  • Fraction – a number in the form a over b where a and b are whole numbers and b is not equal to zero. A fraction can be used to name part of an object, part of a set of objects, to compare two quantities, or to represent division.
  • Grouping symbols – symbols to show a group of terms and/or expressions within a mathematical expression
  • Improper fraction – a number in the form a over b where a and b are whole numbers and a > b where b is not equal to zero
  • Least common denominator (LCD) – the least common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions
  • Mixed number – a number that is composed of a whole number and a fraction
  • Numerator – the part of a fraction written above the fraction bar that tells the number of fractional parts specified or being considered
  • Order of operations – the rules of which calculations are performed first when simplifying an expression
  • Positive rational numbers – the set of numbers that can be expressed as a a over b, where a and b are counting (natural) numbers
  • Product – the total when two or more factors are multiplied
  • Proper fraction – a number in the form a over b where a and b are whole numbers and a < b where b is not equal to zero
  • Quotient – the size or measure of each group or the number of groups when the dividend is divided by the divisor
  • Strip diagram – a linear model used to illustrate number relationships
  • Unit fraction – a fraction in the form blk 1 over b representing the quantity formed by one part of a whole that has been partitioned into b equal parts where b is a non-zero whole number
