Students are beginning their study of fractions. By the end of the unit students will be able to:

  • Represent equivalent fractions using fraction models such as parts of a set, fraction circles, fraction strips, number lines and other manipulatives. Use the models to determine equivalent fractions.
  • Locate fractions on a number line. Use models to order and compare whole numbers and fractions, including mixed numbers and improper fractions.
  • Use fraction models to add and subtract fractions with like denominators in real-world and mathematical situations. Develop a rule for addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators.
