Making Like Units Numerically


In Topic C, students use the number line when adding and subtracting fractions greater than or equal to 1. The number line helps students see that fractions are analogous to whole numbers. The number line makes it clear that numbers on the left are smaller than numbers on the right, which leads to an understanding of integers in Grade 6. Using this tool, students recognize and manipulate fractions in relation to larger whole numbers and to each other.
