FREE Multiplying Mixed Number Printable and Tasks
- When calculating ingredients needed for multiple batches of a recipe
- When determining person fitness goals
- When calculating hourly totals using fractions
- When completing “Do It Yourself” projects
I made the situations into a printable chart to share with my students when introducing this skills. This chart works great printed at 80% (or zoomed down on a copier) and glued to an interactive notebook for future reference.
Next, I created four word problems that matched each real life situation to help my students see the big picture and the connection between multiplying mixed numbers and real life. The tasks are full page but can easily be printed four to a page for an interactive notebook activity. (Ignore the computation error on the example. The answer is 3 3/4 cups)
