Just as the number line is a useful tool for helping students compare and order whole numbers, this Interactive Whiteboard Teacher Tool uses a virtual manipulative to help students compare and order fractions from 0 to 1. In addition to understanding that fractions can be used to represent a part of a whole, it’s critical for students to learn and understand that fractions are numbers with actual values that can either be ordered or considered equivalent. Your class will use landmark fractions and fraction equivalence to place fractions on the number line. 
Objective: 
Students will place a fraction on the number line between 0 and 1. 
Background: 
Students should understand that fractions represent a parttowhole relationship.
