### Identify Fractions on a Number Line

This number sense lesson focuses on identifying fractions on a number line. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read the question and verify the number of sections on the number line from 0 to 1 match the denominator value. If it's different, they will create an equivalent fraction with a matching denominator. Then, they identify the location of a point on the number line using the numerator and circle the correct answer. In addition to the lesson, there are eight pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.

### Create Equivalent Fractions

Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
