 *Items measuring these SOL will be completed without the use of a calculator. Computation and Estimation Focus: Applications of Operations with Rational Numbers The student will a)   multiply and divide fractions and mixed numbers. HCPS Course 1 Curriculum Guide
 Essential Knowledge and Skills Multiply and divide with fractions and mixed numbers. Answers are expressed in simplest form. Essential Understandings How are multiplication and division of fractions and multiplication and division of whole numbers alike? Fraction computation can be approached in the same way as whole number computation, applying those concepts to fractional parts.

1. Multiplying Fractions: Multiply two fractions using an area model. Vary the vertical area to change one fraction and vary the horizontal area to change the other. Then examine the intersection of the areas to find the product.
2. Dividing Fractions: Divide fractions using area models. Adjust the numerators and denominators of the divisor and dividend and see how the area model and calculation change.
3. Dividing Mixed Numbers: Choose the correct steps to divide mixed numbers. Use step-by-step feedback to diagnose and correct incorrect steps.
4. Multiplying Fractions: Multiply two fractions using an area model. Vary the vertical area to change one fraction and vary the horizontal area to change the other. Then examine the intersection of the areas to find the product.
5. Multiplying Mixed Numbers: Choose the correct steps to multiply mixed numbers. Use the step-by-step feedback to diagnose incorrect steps.
