4.2 Fraction Equivalence and Comparison

Unit Goals

• Students generate and reason about equivalent fractions and compare and order fractions with the following denominators: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.

Section A Goals

• Make sense of fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12 through physical representations and diagrams.
• Reason about the location of fractions on the number line.

Section B Goals

• Generate equivalent fractions with the following denominators: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.
• Use visual representations to reason about fraction equivalence, including using benchmarks such as $\frac{1}{2}$ and 1.

Section C Goals

• Use visual representations or a numerical process to reason about fraction comparison.
