Multiplying Decimals


A focus on reasoning about the multiplication of a decimal fraction by a one-digit whole number in Topic E provides the link that connects Grade 4 multiplication work and Grade 5 fluency with multi-digit multiplication. Place value understanding of whole-number multiplication coupled with an area model of the distributive property is used to help students build direct parallels between whole-number products and the products of one-digit multipliers and decimals.
