Arkansas Curriculum Frameworks
AR.Math.Content.5.NF. Number and Operations Fractions
AR.Math.Content.5.NF.B. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division.
AR.Math.Content.5.NF.B.3. Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a b). Where a and b are natural numbers. 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. Solve word problems involving division of natural numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers. For example: Use visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. If 9 people want to share a 50- pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
