__Multiplying & Dividing Fractions & Mixed Numbers__

In Chapter 4, spend time developing conceptual understanding of multiplying fractions. Use visual models to represent problems, teach the algorithm and help students to see the connections between the two. The area model is very useful for all multiplication situations and is emphasized in CCSS especially for multiplication of fractions. Note that division only includes division of fractions by whole numbers and whole number by fractions, but not fractions by fractions. Avoid moving too fast to the algorithm so students develop an understanding of it. (Information from Math in Focus Pacing Calendar)
