Lesson Planning of Multiplication of Fraction with Whole Number
Subject Mathematics
Grade 4^{th}
Students` Learning Outcomes
 Multiply fractions with whole numbers.
Information for Teachers
 Multiplying a fraction by whole number follows the same rules as multiplying two fractions.
 A whole number can be considered as a fraction with a denominator of 1.
 Therefore when a fraction is multiplied by a whole number the numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the number.
 The denominator is multiplied by 1 which does n`t change the denominator.
 While teaching the lesson, teacher should also consult with textbook at all steps where and when required.
Material/ Resources
Writing board, chalk, marker, duster, chart paper, textbook
Introduction
 Write on the board: 1 whole and ask:
 How many halves (1/2) it has? [2]
 Can I say it is as 2 x ½? [Yes]
 Write the following on the board and make students repeat with you.
 Ask the students; what we get if we divide any number with 1. i.e. 7 ÷ 1 = 7 / 1 = 7 (Repeat with other numbers)
 Announce that today we will talk about multiplication of fractions with whole numbers.
Development
Activity 1

Activity 2

Sum up / Conclusion
 Conclude lesson with the following points.
 Multiplying a fraction by whole number follows the same rules as multiplying two fractions.
 Each whole number can be written in fraction form, i.e. 12 = 12/1, 35 = 35 / 1
 Therefore when a fraction is multiplied by a whole number the numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the number.
Assessment
 Give the following questions to solve by showing all steps of multiplication.
Follow up
