Equal shares- fractions and decimals!

We have begun a new math unit on fractions! Check back often for more resources to help your student with understanding fractions! Click on the math header for more fraction and decimal resources! Scroll down to number & operations- {fractions}.

Students will be asked to:
*explain that a fraction is part of a whole
*explain the meaning of the numerator and denominator
*place fractions on a number line
*compare fractions
*identify equivalent fractions (1/2=2/4, 3/6, etc.)
*compare decimals
*place decimals on a number line
*decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator
*solve word problems involving addition and subtraction with like denominators
*add and subtract fractions, including mixed numbers 
*solve word problems that involve multiplying a whole number and a fraction
*rewrite a fraction as a decimal 
*explain the relationship between a decimal and fraction
*identify tenths and hundredths place on a decimal
*show placement of decimals on a number line
*compare decimals using <,>, or +
*add and subtract decimals
