Description: In Lesson 5, students use the method of partitioning a whole into equally spaced increments using the number line as a measurement tool to partition a six-inch strip into 6 equal increments. They repeat the process by partitioning the same strip into 12 equal increments and determine that it shows half-inch intervals. Finally, students partition the strip into 24 equal increments to determine that they have created quarter-inch intervals. Lesson 6 reintroduces the line plot as a tool for displaying measurement data. To prepare students for creating their own line plots in Lessons 7 and 8, Lesson 6 builds foundational experience with representations given in fractional intervals. In Lesson 9, students analyze both categorical and measurement data to solve problems.
