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.) 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.4.a

Interpret the product a/b × q as a × (q ÷ b) (partition the quantity q into b equal parts and then multiply by a). Interpret the product a/b × q as (a × q) ÷ b (multiply a times the quantity q and then partition the product into b equal
parts). For example, use a visual fraction model or write a story context to show that 2/3 × 6 can be interpreted as 2 × (6 ÷ 3) or (2 × 6) ÷ 3. Do the same with 2/3 × 4/5 = 8/15. (In general, a/b × c/d = ac/bd.) 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
