Unit 5, Lesson 6# Build non-unit fractions less than one whole from unit fractions

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students create non-unit fractions by partitioning a whole into equal parts, identifying the unit fraction, and making copies of the unit fraction. For example, they divide a whole into three equal parts to make thirds, shade one part to identify 1/3, and then copy that part to make 2/3.
