1. These Lesson Plans partition number lines into equal parts and explore unit fractions, or fractions with a numerator of 1 (fraction 1/b).
2. Students will learn that fractions with a numerator greater than 1 (fraction a/b) are made up of a sum of unit fractions.
3. Students will solve word problems that locate fractions less than one whole on number lines. Students will learn the importance of using the same size "one whole" when drawing these number lines. (Third Grade Standard 3.NF.A.3.D).
4. Third grade students work with fractions that have denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8.
