Beginning to model fractions on a number line? Here are printouts from Eureka/EngageNY that are recommended for students to use. Print multiple copies to slide into sheet protectors/whiteboards.

Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a 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.
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.
Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
