Calculating a Fraction of an Amount

To calculate a fraction of an amount students begin to understand how the term 'of' in mathematics relates to multiplication.  Through a series of scaffolding examples students progress from calculating a 1/4 of an amount to 4/5.  The class then apply their learning to calculate proportions rather than quantities.
