Lesson objective: Apply the skill of using number lines to show a fraction's distance from zero.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of fractions as numbers that name a distance from zero to a real-life situation. Students are asked to construct number lines to model how far students ran over a number of days and compare and contrast the distances travelled.

Key Concept students will use:

Skills students will use:

- Partitioning number lines into sixths, eighths and fourths
- Combing unit fractions to create new fractions
- Using number lines to show a fractional distance travelled

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 (model with mathematics) as they partition number lines to show how far students ran over multiple days

**Key vocabulary: **

- denominator
- distance
- fraction
- numerator
- whole
