Fraction Standards for Our Next Unit

N.ME.05.09 Understand percentages as parts out of 100, use % notation, and express a part of a
whole as a percentage.

N.ME.05.10 Understand a fraction as a statement of division, e.g., 2 ÷ 3 = 2/3, represent simple fractions with pictures.

N.ME.05.11 Given two fractions, express them as equivalent fractions with a common denominator, but not necessarily a least common denominator, e.g., 1/2 = 4/8 and 3/4 = 6/8; use denominators less than 12, or factors of 100.

N.FL.05.12 Find the product of two unit fractions with small denominators, using area model.

N.FL.05.13 Divide a fraction by a whole number and a whole number by a fraction, using simple unit fractions.

N.FL.05.14 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 100, using the common denominator that is the product of the denominators of the 2 fractions, e.g., 3/8 + 7/10 = ((3x10)+(7x8))/80 = (30+56) ÷ 80 = 86/80.

N.MR.05.19 Solve word problems that involve finding sums and differences of fractions with unlike denominators using knowledge of equivalent fractions.

N.FL.05.20 Solve applied problems involving fractions and decimals; include rounding of answers and checking reasonableness; use examples involving money.

N.MR.05.21 Solve for the unknown in such equations as: 1/4 + x = 7/12.
