The Number System

The goal 
Student will apply
and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide
fractions by fractions, multiply and divide multidigit numbers and find
common factors and multiples, and apply and extend previous
understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.

More specifically
students use the meaning of fractions, the meanings of multiplication and
division, and the relationship between multiplication and division to
understand and explain why the procedures for dividing fractions make sense.
Students use these operations to solve problems. Students extend their
previous understandings of number and the ordering of numbers to the full
system of rational numbers, which includes negative rational numbers, and in
particular negative integers. They reason about the order and absolute value
of rational numbers and about the location of points in all four quadrants of
the coordinate plane.


Apply and extend
previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide
fractions by fractions.

Math fact
practicemultiplication: A+Plus Math


6.NS.1 
Interpret and
compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of
fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations
to represent the problem.

For example, create
a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the
quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain
that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (a/b) ÷
(c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2
lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of
yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area
1/2 square mi? Compute fluently with multidigit numbers and find common
factors and multiples.
