Domain 5.NF  Number and
Operations  Fractions 
Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions. 
Lessons 
5.NF.1 
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)

Adding Mixed Numbers
Subtracting Mixed Numbers 
5.NF.2 
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2. 
Solving Word Problems by Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers 
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions. 
Lessons 
5.NF.3 
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by
the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of
whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed
numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent
the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by
4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are
shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9
people want to share a 50pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many
pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers
does your answer lie?

5.NF.4

multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction. 
Multiplying Fractions 

5.NF.4.a Interpret the product
(a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts;
equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b. For
example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create
a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) =
8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = ac/bd.)

5.NF.4.b Find the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by tiling it with unit squares of the appropriate unit fraction side lengths, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. Multiply fractional side lengths to find areas of rectangles, and represent fraction products as rectangular areas.

Patterns and Exponents 

5.NF.5.b Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n × a)/(n × b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.

5.NF.7 
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to
divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit
fractions. 
Dividing Fractions 

5.NF.7.a Interpret division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3. 
Dividing Fractions 

5.NF.7.b Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4. 
Dividing Fractions 

5.NF.7.c Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by nonzero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
