Solve this algebraic equation in one step by using the multiplication property of equality. Not sure what that property is? Then watch this video and see the instructor work out this problem. These are decimal numbers so make sure to use the rules that apply to multiplying decimal numbers.
Base ten blocks are great tools for developing not only an understanding of whole numbers, but of decimals as well. This upper-elementary activity uses these versatile manipulatives and the array model to teach young mathematicians how to multiply and divide decimals. Consider breaking this activity up across multiple days, ensuring learners have sufficient time to practice and become comfortable with multiplication before moving onto division. To maximize student success, use base-ten blocks when teaching addition and subtraction of decimals, familiarizing the class with this approach to modeling decimals before introducing the operations of multiplication and division.
Multiply two mixed fractions. First, change them to improper fractions. Now, multiply the numerator times the numerator and the denominator times the denominator. Oh, that's a big number. Reduce it. Now, change it back into a mixed number. Done. Still confused? Follow along as the instructor illustrates the steps to this problem.
There are two percentage concepts covered in this video. The first is how to find a given percent of a given number; What is 15% of 40? The second concept shows learners how to find a number when the percent is given; - 3 is 9% of what? Sal finishes by demonstrating how to convert percentages to decimal numbers in order to solve the problems.
Mathematicians need to know that not all numbers are rational. We approximate irrational number with rational numbers. That is why a calculator may be misleading. This task give learners an opportunity to see how rounding a number and then multiplying it is not the same as multiplying a number and rounding it. 
This is a good Common Core question that relates inflation to operations with decimals and rounding. Young learners are asked to find out if an amount of money can purchase the same amount of movie tickets in 2012 as it did in 1987. They then must decide how much more money is needed to purchase the same amount of items. Can be used as a class activity or as an independent assignment. 
Kids love to cook! What is a better place to learn mixed numbers than with a recipe? It is up to learners to decide how they want to divide this recipe in half. They may choose to model the mixed number and then divide the model by two. Maybe it is easier for them to graph on a number line and then mark the half-way point. Or a straight computation of multiplying by one half could be their choice. Any way your number crunchers dice it up, they need to use critical thinking in order to complete this exercise.
Learners multiply decimals and/or mixed numbers. They explore the effects of multiplying decimals and mixed numbers. They practice estimating answers when a number is multiplied by a decimal or mixed number.
Learn to multiply with decimals. The class reviews multiplying multi-digit whole numbers based off of word problems. Then they learn how to multiply using decimals and practice with money problems.
