Elementary (Intermediate)

This page has been created to demonstrate how we can utilize resources to study one Math CCSS standard, view a video tutorial teaching the identified standard and then analyze a sample tasks, as well as, view student products demonstrating proficiency of the standard. These resources have been gathered from various websites throughout the country.


Grade Level: 5

Standard: 5.NF.6 Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. 


Study the Standard: This guide was developed by The Utah Education Network, for each standard the guide identifies core content, supports for teachers, academic vocabulary, instructional strategies and assessment tasks. To view the guide for the identified standard (5.NF.6) click here.


 Khan Academy: The Khan Academy website has created practice pages for essential skills, as well as, video tutorials teaching (pre-teaching or re-teaching the specific skill.) Click here to view the practice page for the identified standard. 


The Illustrative Mathematics Project: The Illustrative Math Project had developed ranges and types of mathematical work that students can experience aligned to the CCSS. To view one of five tasks aligned to standard 5.NF.6 click here.
