Place Fractions on a Number Line

Can you put a fraction on a number line? You can! As learners will find out, they can break a number line into equal parts just like they can with a block or pie. With an example problem and clear explicit instruction, they'll be guided through the process of determining where the fraction one-third should go on a number line. The strategy is semi-concrete and highly visual which makes it a great way to connect with multiple learning styles.

Classroom Considerations
  • If you aren't logged in to Learnzillion, you will be prompted to create a free account to access all materials for this resource
  • Introducing this process early will help learners later on as they begin plotting decimals on the number line
  • This method is good for helping learners develop algebraic reasoning and number sense
  • The strategy is sound because it builds on the use of a number line, which most learners are very familiar with 
  • None
