Comparison, Order, and Size of Fractions

EngageNY

Supporting grades: 3

Description: Fraction strips and the number line carry into Topic F as students compare fractions with the same numerator. As they study and compare different fractions, students continue to reason about their size. They develop the understanding that the numerator or number of copies of the fractional unit (shaded parts) does not necessarily determine the size of the fraction. The module closes with an exploration in which students are guided to develop a method for precisely partitioning various wholes into any fractional unit, using the number line as a measurement tool.
