This complete lesson packet
connects equivalent fractions to the number line.
The lesson offers 7-pages of practice that builds slowly in complexity to challenge all levels of learners in your class. Each problem gives students a different number line and 3-4 fractions they need to place on it. Students must use equivalent fractions to decide where each fractions should go. For example, if the number line is broken into sixths, students need to decide where to place 1/2 and 2/3. This builds a deeper understanding that equivalent fractions are not only equal but represent the same place on the number line. It also prepares students for comparing and ordering fractions in subsequent lessons.
