Identify the fraction that matches the presentation (rectangles and circles; halves, fourths, thirds, and eighths).
  • Concrete: 
    • Identify part and whole when item is divided. 
    • Count the number of the parts selected (3 of the 4 parts; have fraction present but not required to read ¾). 
  • Representation: 
    • Understand how parts to whole can be expressed as fractions using numbers.
    • Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts. 
    • Ability to recognize that fraction bars of equal lengths can be divided into different numbers of equal parts/units. 
    • Understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b. 
    • Ability to recognize that the more equal parts, the smaller the part.
    • Understand concepts, symbols, and vocabulary: numerator, denominator, _/_.
