This image shows two number lines of different lengths. The longer number line is partitioned into fourths with one-fourth labeled. The shorter number line is partitioned into halves with one-half labeled. The zero is at the same point and one-half and one-fourth are at the same point on both number lines.

This task is meant to address a common error that students make, namely, that they represent fractions with different wholes when they need to compare them. This task is meant to generate classroom discussion related to comparing fractions. Particularly important is that students understand that when you compare fractions, you implicitly always have the same whole.

Ordering fractions can seem like quite a mundane and routine task. This …

Ordering fractions can seem like quite a mundane and routine task. This Nrich problem encourages students to take a fresh look at the process of comparing fractions, and offers lots of opportunities to practice manipulating fractions in an engaging context where students can pose questions and make conjectures.

After the Great Depression struck, Ford especially wanted to support ailing farmers. For two years, Ford and his team researched ways to use farmers’ crops in his Ford Motor Company. They discovered that the soybean was the perfect answer. Soon, Ford’s cars contained many soybean plastic parts, and Ford incorporated soybeans into every part of his life. He ate soybeans, he wore clothes made of soybean fabric, and he wanted to drive soybeans, too. The resource includes a lesson plan/book card, a design challenge, and copy of a design thinking journal that provide guidance on using the book to inspire students' curiosity for design thinking. Maker Challenge: Think about the people in your community and the challenges they face. List three challenges that affect their daily life. Consider something you use every day and brainstorm how it could be repurposed or modified to address this problem.

A document is included in the resources folder that lists the complete standards-alignment for this book activity.

Students will predict how many amusement parks are in their state. They will then analyze census data on the numbers of amusement parks in all 50 states in 2016. (Data in this activity do not include the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico.) Then students will write numbers as fractions and create a visual model of the data.
