Lesson video for 'Plot a unit fraction on a number line'

Big Ideas: We can use equivalent fractions to help us compare fractions with denominators of 10 and 100. There are different models to help us find equivalent fractions. In order to compare fractions they have to be in the context of the same whole. Th...
