From building and representing fractions to adding and subtracting mixed number fractions with uncommon denominators, we take you each step of the way! We have 100 scaffolded fraction mats to support learning targeted at third through fifth grades.

Below, you can see the scaffolded progression of representing equivalent fractions on a number line.

First, students will use fraction tiles to find and represent equivalent fractions.

Next, students will write the fractions and use the fraction tiles to help space out the correct number of equal spaces on the number line. Finally, students can label the number line.

When ready, students can draw and label fractions on a number line without the assistance of the manipulatives.
