Fractions on a Number Line - digital version for use with Google Drive™. With this resource, your students will work with fractions in five different activities of varying difficulty.

This is a digital interactive notebook resource, so please only purchase if you have the resources to use it (computers/laptops/tablets, etc. and Internet access). These activities are all presented in fun sports theme (American football and soccer). The pages are colorful and tap into a range of skills. If you have a Google classroom, this is a great way to bring fun to learning about fractions. Use when introducing the concept of fractions on a number line. #tptdigital



• Instructions on using the resource, with examples (12 pages): Also includes instructions for using with Microsoft OneDrive.

• Digital Interactive Notebook (10 pages)

• Interactive Fractions Game with 5 levels (44 problems in all)

• Interactive digital resource for use with Google Drive (38 activity pages): moving fractions to the correct location on a number line and comparing fractions to 1/2 and each other. Halves, fourths, sixths, and eighths are included. All of the number lines are from 0 to 1, as this is meant to be an introduction to fractions on a number line (no mixed numbers or improper fractions).

• Answer Key in PDF form (40 pages)

• Optional printable pages (blank number lines that can be used with the digital activity or as as supplement (8 pages)


Why should I use a digital interactive resource instead of a paper one?

• You will save paper and ink, increase technology fluency, and support a green environment.

• Digital files can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection! No need to worry about losing papers or keeping track of handwritten notes.

• Your students will be engaged, and you won't have scraps of paper all over your classroom! You also won't have to search for pieces that might go missing.

• Once the project is complete, your students will have created a piece of their digital portfolio. Since the information is housed on slides, presenting their material is much more seamless and manageable.

Are there any other benefits to using a digital interactive resource?

• Digital resources can be high in color and image-heavy, without worrying about using excessive ink.

• Students can gain many tech skills they may not get otherwise, including learning short cut keys, manipulating digital elements, and many more.

• Peer collaboration, editing, and review are all available at the click of a button.

• Editing and updating are not cause for a total redo!

• When you are to start the activity over again with a new group of students, you won't need to run to the copy machine.

What if I can't get something to work as I think it should?

• As with any technology-centered resource, there may be some hiccups along the way. I have provided very detailed instructions for using this resource. If you get stuck, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to work with you so that you and your students can reap the benefits of going interactive and digital.

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.
