Area of Rectangles with Fractional Lengths
Videos, examples, and solutions to help Grade 5 students learn to apply and
extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a
fraction or whole number by a fraction.
A. Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q
into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of
operations a × q ÷ b. For example, use a visual fraction model to
show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation.
Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) =
B. Find the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by
tiling it with unit squares of the appropriate unit fraction side
lengths, and show that the area is the same as would be found by
multiplying the side lengths. Multiply fractional side lengths to
find areas of rectangles, and represent fraction products as

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to
support states, schools, and teachers in the implementation of the
CCSS. Each video is an audiovisual resource that focuses on one or
more specific standards and usually includes examples/illustrations
geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each
content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual
standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard
although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.
