Essential Understandings
Concrete:
- Given a fraction (with a denominator of 10 or less), model the fraction with manipulatives in a rectangle or circle.
- Use manipulatives to model another fraction (with a different denominator of 10 or less) in the same whole.
- Compare the two models to determine if they are greater than, less than, or equal to one another.
- Locate two given fractions on separate number lines that are divided into equal parts to match each of the denominators.
- Use the number lines to determine if the fractions are equal, greater than, or less than each other based on their location on the number line (e.g., 3/4 > 1/2).
- Apply understanding of the symbols of <, >, and = with fractions.
- Understand the following concepts of comparison, greater than, less than, equal, fraction.

Cluster:
Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. (Major Cluster) : Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters. |
