Tennessee Academic Standards
TN.3.NF. Number and Operations - Fractions (NF)
3.NF.A. Develop understanding of fractions as numbers.
3.NF.A.1. Understand a fraction, 1/ݑ , as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts (unit fraction); understand a fraction ϰݑ/ ΰݑ as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/ϰݑ. For example, 3/4 represents a quantity formed by 3 parts of size 1/4.
3.NF.A.3. Explain equivalence of fractions and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
3.NF.A.3.c. Express whole numbers as fractions and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. For example, express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point on a number line diagram.
3.NF.A.3.d. Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Use the symbols >, =, or < to show the relationship and justify the conclusions.
TN.3.G. Geometry (G)
3.G.A. Reason about shapes and their attributes.
3.G.A.2. Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
