This product is intended to supplement your fraction unit. It includes 28 task cards that involve finding a fraction of a set or group. These cards can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used in a math center, as a whole class activity, as bell-ringers in the morning, as a partner activity, etc. Student Recording sheet and answer key included. Laminate the task cards and use year after year. They look great whether printed in color or grayscale.
There are 10 worksheets that cover basic understanding of fractions, comparing fractions using fraction circles, fraction bars, and number lines, finding equivalent fractions using fraction circles, bars, and number lines, ordering fractions using models, finding fractions that are closer to 0, 1/2, or 1, as well as, fraction problem solving. These can be used to supplement and enhance your fraction study, or you can use them to assess your student's understanding of fractions. All worksheets include answer keys.

CCSS COVERED IN THIS PRODUCT INCLUDE:
Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on the number line.
Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
