Area Of Rectangular Figures With Fractional Side Lengths


In Topic C, students extend their understanding of area as they use rulers and right angle templates to construct and measure rectangles with fractional side lengths and find their areas.

They apply their extensive knowledge of fraction multiplication to interpret areas of rectangles with fractional side lengths (5.NF.4b) and solve real-world problems involving these figures (5.NF.6), including reasoning about scaling through contexts in which areas are compared. Visual models and equations are used to represent the problems through the Read-Draw-Write (RDW) protocol.
