Key Facts & Information
- At the end of the lesson, the student will understand that any fraction a/b, wherein a is any value greater than 1, is a multiple of a unit fraction, 1/b.
A NOTE FOR THE TEACHER
- When understanding the multiples of unit fractions, take note of the following:
- Start by identifying whether the numerator of the fraction is greater than 1.
- Determine what the unit fraction is.
- Recall that unit fractions when added together n times also means that the unit fractions are multiplied n times.
- Again, when dealing with the multiplication of fractions, the rule is you multiply based on where it is located in the fraction.
- Numerators can only be multiplied by numerators; denominators can only be multiplied by denominators.
- We do not need to get any least common multiple whatsoever.
- Remember that unit fractions are the simplest form of any fractions. It is the fraction that has 1 as the numerator.
- Recall the multiples of 1.
- It is the set of whole numbers 1,2,3,4,5…
- Therefore, the multiples of 1/b are the set of fractions: 1/b, 2/b, 3/b, 4/b, 5/b, …
- Consider 5/7.
- Its unit fraction is 1/7.
- Based on the idea of multiples, we can know that it is the fifth multiple of 1/7.
- 1/7 multiplied by 5 produces 5/7.
- Therefore, we can now understand that any whole number, n, multiplied to a unit fraction produces the product n/b (wherein b is a value of the denominator greater than 1):
- 1/b x n = (1 x n)/b = n/b
