Lessons 91 and 92: Dividing Regions into Equal Parts/Fractions and Regions
Lesson Objectives:
Students will identify regions that have been divided into equalsized parts and divide regions into equalsized parts.
Students will associate the model, symbol, and words used to describe a fractional part of a whole region.
Students will identify regions that have been divided into equalsized parts and divide regions into equalsized parts.
Students will associate the model, symbol, and words used to describe a fractional part of a whole region.
A FRACTION names parts of a whole. The numerator is the top number in a fraction. It tells the number of equal parts included in the fraction. The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. It tells the total number of equal parts that make up the whole.

Fractions and Sets 9.4: Fractional Parts of a Set
Lesson Objective: Students will find a fractional part of a set.
Lesson Vocabulary: UNIT FRACTION
A UNIT FRACTION is a fraction with a numerator of 1. A unit fraction describes one part of a set, but there may be more than 1 object in that part of the set. Examples of unit fractions are: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/8...)

Lesson 9.5: Fractions on a Number Line
Lesson Objective:
Students will identify fractional parts and mixed numbers on a number line.
Students will identify fractional parts and mixed numbers on a number line.
Lesson Vocabulary: MIXED NUMBERS
MIXED NUMBERS are numbers that have a whole number part and a fraction part. Example: 2 1/2, 3 2/3
You can use mixed numbers to name points on a number line.
MIXED NUMBERS are numbers that have a whole number part and a fraction part. Example: 2 1/2, 3 2/3
You can use mixed numbers to name points on a number line.
Look at the number lines below. Each fraction names a point on a number line. 1/2 is halfway between 0 and 1.

Lesson 105 and 106: Equivalent Fractions
Lesson Objectives:
Students will use models to find equivalent fractions.
Students will use number lines to identify equivalent fractions.
Students will use models to find equivalent fractions.
Students will use number lines to identify equivalent fractions.
Fractions can have different numerators and denominators and have the same value. These fractions name the same parts of a whole and are called equivalent fractions. Look at the example below. It shows that the fraction 1/3 is equivalent to 2/6.
Study the chart below to find more equivalent fractions. You can see that 1/2 is equivalent to 2/4, 3/6, 4/8, and 5/10.

You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number. In the examples below, you can see how the numerator and denominator have both been multiplied by 2 to create an equivalent fraction.
