Big Ideas: Number lines can be used to identify fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. This lesson builds on students' understanding that whole numbers can be represented on a number line. Using what students learned previously about a whole being the sum of its fractional parts, students learn to recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers using a number line. This builds toward student understanding of adding and subtracting mixed numbers. Vocabulary: fraction, equivalent, numerator, denominator, whole, part, partition, number line Special Materials: None
