Ms. Montgomery’s Title I fourth grade math students at Holy Cross Regional are mastering the number line fractions of
- whole numbers, and
- mixed numbers (whole numbers with fractions.)
The objective of the activity was to be able to identify 1/4’s on a number line. It could be a quarter of an inch, meter, etc. So we blew it up and wrote it on the table.
Creating the Number Line
We began by making a large number line.
Next, we divided it into sections.
Then we divided each section in half.
Following that, we divided each half in half.
At last, we practiced counting on the number line fractions to a specific quarter.
The students picked the numbers then and counted them out with dry erase markers.
By the end of the lesson they could count out a whole number and the designated quarter!
In summary, Ms. Montgomery and the fourth graders accomplished their objective!
