Module 5: Fractions as numbers on the number line

About this unit

"In this module, students extend and deepen Grade 2 practice with equal shares to understanding fractions as equal partitions of a whole (2.G.3). Their knowledge becomes more formal as they work with area models and the number line. Throughout the module, students have multiple experiences working with the Grade 3 specified fractional units of halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and eighths. To build flexible thinking about fractions, students are exposed to additional fractional units such as fifths, ninths, and tenths." Eureka Math/EngageNY (c) 2015
