The Common Core stresses the importance of moving from concrete models of fractions to representations of fractions on the number line. This concept gives students a clearer understanding of fractions.
This PowerPoint presentation will help students recognize that fractions are numbers and that they expand the number system beyond whole numbers. The lesson will introduce a fun and easy strategy for placing and identifying fractions on a number line. When used on an interactive whiteboard, students will have the opportunity to practice the strategy.
The Power Point includes links to two online tutorials. In addition, there are two links for interactive online games that can be used on the whiteboard to practice identifying and placing fractions on a number line.
