Module 5
Fraction Equivalence, Ordering, and Operations

 
Overview

Throughout this module students will:
  • explore fraction equivalence
  • understand mixed numbers
  • decompose fractions and create tape diagrams to represent them
  • use multiplication to create an equivalent fraction comprised of smaller units
  • use division to create an equivalent fraction comprised of larger units
  • use the opposite operation to test for and/or verify equivalence of fractions
  • compare fractions with like denominators
  • compare fractions with unlike denominators
  • use addition and multiplication to build fractions greater than 1 and represent them on a number line
