 Ordering Fractions
Lesson Objective
Students will order fractions on a number line.
Lesson Plan
Do Now
Display a number line from 0 to 25. Point to each number and count aloud from 0 to 25. Tell students that this number line. A number line is a line with labels.
Direct Instruction
State today’s objective.
Display a number line that is divided into fourths. Tell students that counting a fraction number line is like counting a whole number line. Point to the first mark and say, zero, onefourth, twofourth, etc. Point out that the denominator stays the same, but the numerator is in order, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.
Guided Practice
Make a number line on the classroom floor. Think aloud the following:
I want to draw a number line that is divided into sixths. I am going to begin my number line at 0. Since I want to divide my number line into sixths, I am going to mark six tick marks to the right of zero.
Ask for a volunteer to hop along the number line to find 4/6. Encourage students to count after each jump. Use dry erase marker to record fraction after each jump.
Repeat this activity by drawing a number line that is divided into eights.
*Be sure to complete each number line. Remind students that when the numerator and denominator are the same number the fraction is a whole number (i.e. 6/6 = 1 whole).
Independent Practice
Give students direction on how to complete practice sheet.
Closing
Tell students to take out their Math Journals. Draw and label a number line divided into twelfths. Circle 8/12ths.
