This Extend a Fraction Using a Number Line video also includes:

Add depth to your class' understanding of fractions with video seven of this nine-part series. Building on prior experience representing fractions on number lines, young mathematicians learn to identify and extend patterns involving the fractions 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8. A great opportunity to reinforce the concept of equivalent fractions while strengthening pattern recognition skills. Use this resource for teaching how to use a ruler to measure length, or as a transition into learning about the addition of fractions.
