Finer grained standards that are part of this one

Explain why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explain why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence π/π = ππ/ππ to the effect of multiplying π/π by 1. (e.g., Students may have the misconception that multiplication always produces a larger result. They need to have the conceptual understanding with examples like; 3/4 Γ πππ πππ§ππ ππππ will have a product that is less than 12.)

Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor based on the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication (e.g., They see (1/2 β 3) as half the size of 3.).
