Big Ideas: A fraction greater than one can be interpreted on a number line. A fraction describes the division of a whole into equal parts. This lesson builds upon students' knowledge of representing fractions greater than one on a number line. The lesson specifically focuses on working with fractions greater than one.The task requires students to demonstrate their critical thinking skills by having them create their own number line to represent a fraction greater than one. Using a real world scenario, students are expected to understand and represent fractions using their number line. This builds toward students' ability to use number lines to compare fractions. Vocabulary: number line, point, numerator, denominator, fraction, partition, mixed fraction/mixed number Special Materials: Fraction strips (optional)
