SC.3.NSF. Number Sense – Fractions
3.NSF.1. Develop an understanding of fractions (i.e., denominators 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10) as numbers.
3.NSF.1a. A fraction 1/b (called a unit fraction) is the quantity formed by one part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts.
3.NSF.1b. A fraction a/b is the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
3.NSF.1d. A fraction can be represented using set, area, and linear models.
3.NSF.2. Explain fraction equivalence (i.e., denominators 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10) by demonstrating an understanding that:
3.NSF.2d. Fractions with the same numerator or same denominator can be compared by reasoning about their size based on the same whole.
3.G.2. Partition two-dimensional shapes into 2, 3, 4, 6, or 8 parts with equal areas and express the area of each part using the same unit fraction. Recognize that equal parts of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
