### Description

Fractions are the first place student performance begins to drop and math begins to become â€śdifficultâ€ť. We designed this packet to allow for an easier transition into these topics with many practice pages and easy to follow directions. This Number Line Fractions pack could be introduced in 3rd or 4th grade. In this pack, students will begin to develop the connection between picture fractions and number lines, equivalent fractions, basic introduction to subtraction and multiplication of fractions, and 8 pages of reading rulers ( 1/8 inch, 1/16 inch, and metrics).

One skill many students need more practice in is reading (interpreting) rulers, so we decided to make this a large portion of this packet â€“ a skill which many other practice books may skip or only briefly touch upon. On pages 7, 8, and 10 we begin to introduce addition/subtraction of fractions and that â€śofâ€ť means multiplication [such as 2/5 of 5 = (2/5)(5) = 2].
