Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers

Multiplying fractions by whole numbers is easy!  Fourth graders are learning how.  In the example above, you simply multiply the numerator 4 by the whole number 5 to get 20.  Write that over the the denominator of 20 and voila! - you've solved the problem!  If you want to get really fancy reduce 20/5 to the whole number 4.

Today's homework:
1.  Math Mr. Spaulding: p. 617-618.
               Miss W: p. 611-612.
               Mrs. Thompson: p. 515-516.
               Mrs. Leone: worksheet.
2.  Rewrite and edit yesterday's writing assignment.  Draw a good picture to go with it.
3.  Read for half an  hour.
4.  Get parent initials.
