# Identifying and Comparing Fractions (3.3A, 3.3B, 3.3H)

Product Description
Fractions: This resource is designed for third graders who need additional practice identifying and comparing fractions (TEKS 3.3A, 3.3B, 3.3H and Common Core Standards 3.NF.A.2.A, 3.NF.A.3.D).

The specific skills practiced are:
-Represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2,3,4,6, and 8
-Determine the fraction greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators 2,3,4,6, and 8 given a specified point on a number line
-Compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying using symbols, words, or pictorial models

The Math Intervention Series was created based on a need for quick, easy prep activities that could be used with students who need additional practice in key math skills. It is designed to be used with a small group during a guided math workshop or tutoring session. Each component of this resource (small group, math center, and assessment) is designed with a specific time frame in mind – about 15 to 20 minutes per activity. This resource can be used in one day or spread across several days.

This resource includes:
★Page 3: Resource information including when the resource is used and teacher prep of materials (if needed)

★Pages 4-9: Small Group lesson plans, word problems, and answer key.
The word problems all involve identifying and comparing fraction using pictorial models, number lines, and comparing symbols. The word problems are designed to be worked through with teacher guidance in order to introduce and practice strategies. The small group component includes four word problems, lesson plans, and an answer key.

★ Pages 10-17: Fraction Task Cards- Includes an assignment poster to display, 12 task cards, recording sheet, and answer key. This is designed as part of a math center. Students identify and compare fractions. Note: The task cards are open-ended, not multiple choice. Open-ended questions require students to work through each problem and also take out the possibility of guessing. *Includes a teacher reference answer key with images of each task card and an explanation of the correct answer.

★ Pages 18-19 Quick-check/Assessment: This one page assessment includes 8 questions. Students must answer the fraction word problems.

Note: I referenced the following TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) when creating this resource:
3.3(A) represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using concrete objects and pictorial models, including strip diagrams and number lines (supporting standard)
3.3(B) determine the corresponding fraction greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 given a specified point on a number line (supporting standard)
3.3(H) compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying the conclusion using symbols, words, objects, and pictorial models (readiness standard)
This resource also can be used to review the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.2.ARepresent 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.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3.DCompare 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.

This resource prints well in black and white or color.

I encourage you to check the preview to see more of what is included! Thank you!
