Multiplying Fractions by Whole Numbers shows up in your daily life all the time, but perhaps you just don't know it yet.

Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers together is often termed finding the fractional part of a whole number. We teach you why in this song. Enjoy the video!

LYRICS
Fractional Parts of a Whole

I was running 8 miles away. I had already run 3/4 of the way.
To find how far I'd traveled from my front door.
I did 8 times 3 and got 24.
Then I divided by 4 and I got 6.
Six miles I had run in my brand new kicks!

Multiplying whole numbers by fractions is awesome. Yea!
Well here's a similar problem. We'll not have forgotten.
Multiply by the top. Divide by the bottom.
Multiply by the top. Divide by the bottom.

I was riding to the video game shop.
I had ridden 5/6 of 12 city blocks.
How far I had gone is what I wanted to find.
12 Times 5 is what I multiplied.
I got 60 and then divided by 6.
I had ridden 10 blocks and did a cool bike trick.

Chorus

A girl used repeated addition to see..
if she could use the strategy to solve 1/2 times 3.
She thought fast, and then it came like a FLASH!
That 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2 is 3 halves.
She converted 3 halves to 1 and a half.
She had a crush that would last. It was a crush on MATH!

Chorus

http://www.NUMBEROCK.com is a provider of educational videos for kids which was founded by an innovative 5th Grade teacher who envisioned a new kind of classroom where students got energized for math class. Parents of his students even noticed their children singing mathematics songs around the dinner table well beyond school hours.

Seeing his students so enthusiastic when it was time for math was welcome, to say the least! But the epiphanous moment was when students were singing math songs all-day long like they were in the American Top 40!

Each of these rhythmic music videos from NUMBEROCK can be enjoyed right here on our YouTube Channel. We, hereby, cordially invite you to browse through the full library and hope you'll find that the songs make the maths* remarkably more fun.

We dare to believe that these math songs + videos can actually identify with elementary school children's increasingly finicky perception of what is cool and trendy. While each song is diverse in composition, most fit directly into the modern musical genres that excite young kids: genres such as Rap, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop and even Reggae!

We're curious to see how these musical math videos will be used now that we have shared them with a broader audience. But whether you use these songs as a rich teaching resource or just to brighten up the school-day a bit, we hope that as our project continues you will eventually find a relevant song for each lesson plan and concept in the math curriculum taught throughout the academic year.

We'll be releasing new songs and videos regularly until eventually addressing all the math skills and concepts that a Common Core Curriculum demands from 3rd Grade to 4th Grade, and even 5th Grade to 6th Grade.

Our main goal is to make teaching and learning math more fun and more interactive. SchoolHouse Rock! and Flocabulary has done this in other subjects for us in the previous generations, and many of us still enjoy watching their YouTube Videos which teach us about Government, Science, and English amongst other subjects.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

4.NF (Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.)

5.NF (Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a whole by a fraction.)
