**Virgin Islands Common Core Education Standards**. The top number of a fraction is called the numerator. It shows how many pieces of a whole we are talking about. The bottom number is called the denominator. It shows how many pieces an object was divided into, or how many total pieces we have. Read More...

VI.CC.NF.4. Number and Operations--Fractions

Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.

NF.4.4. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.

NF.4.4(a) Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 x (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 x (1/4).

Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

NF.4.1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/(n x b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

NF.4.2. Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
