1 By the end of the lesson, I will be able to… Lesson 9 Objective: Find a fraction of a measurement, and solve word problems.5th Grade Module 4– Lesson 9K. Clauson
2 Application ProblemThere are 42 people at a museum. Two-thirds of them are children. How many children are at the museum? Extension: If 13 of the children are girls, how many more boys than girls are at the museum?
3 Problem 1 1/4 lb = ____ oz Which is a larger unit, pounds or ounces? ConceptDevelopmentProblem 1 1/4 lb = ____ ozWhich is a larger unit, pounds or ounces?1 lb x 1 lb4So, we are expressing a fraction of a larger unit as the smaller unit. We want to find 1/4 of 1 pound. We know that 1 pound is the same as how many ounces?1 lb = 16 ozLet’s rename the pound in our expression as ounces. Write it on your personal white board.1 lb x 16 oz4
4 Problem 1 1/4 lb = ____ oz 1 lb = 16 oz ConceptDevelopmentProblem 1 1/4 lb = ____ oz1 lb = 16 ozHow will we find how many ounces are in a fourth of a pound? Turn and talk.1 lb x 16 oz4Students could say…We can find 1/4 of 16.We can multiply 1/4 x 16.It’s a fraction of a set. We’ll just multiply 16 by a fourth.We can draw a tape diagram and find one-fourth of 16.SOLVE THE PROBLEM!
6 Problem 2 3/4 ft = ____ inCompare this problem to the first one. Turn and talk. We know that 1 foot is the same as how many inches?1 ft = 12 in3 ft x 1 ft4Let’s rename the foot in our expression as inches. Write it on your personal white board.3 ft x 12 in4Is this true?Is it equal?How do you know?
7 Problem 2 3/4 ft = ____ in 1 ft = 12 in 3 ft x 12 in 4 Before we solve this, let’s estimate our answer. We are finding part of 1 foot. Will our answer be more than 6 inches or less than 6 inches? How do you know? Turn and talk.Work with a neighbor to solve this problem. One of you can use multiplication to solve, and the other can use a tape diagram to solve. Check your neighbor’s work when you’re finished.3 ft x 12 in4
8 Problem 2 3/4 ft = ____ in1 ft = 12 in3 ft x 12 in4
9 Problem 3 Mr. Corsetti spends 2/3 of every year in Florida Problem 3 Mr. Corsetti spends 2/3 of every year in Florida. How many months does he spend in Florida each year?Work independently. You may use either a tape diagram or a multiplication sentence to solve.First think: How many months are in a year?1 year = _______ months
10 1 year = 12 monthsProblem 3 Mr. Corsetti spends 2/3 of every year in Florida. How many months does he spend in Florida each year?
