Emphasis: MStandard  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? 

Component  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.) 
Component  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.


Emphasis: MEStandard  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.
