The Fractions Number Line above is aligned, either partially or wholly, with standard 4NF03 taken from the CCSM (Common Core Standards For Mathematics) – see the extract below). The resources below are similarly aligned.

Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

  • Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
  • Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
  • Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
  • Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
