# Fractions on a Number Line (same numerator) - Lesson for Grade 3, Chapter - Making and Representing Fractions

In the lesson "Fractions on a Number Line (same numerator)" from the unit Foundations in Numbers and Fractions, third-grade students will embark on an engaging journey to understand fractions. This lesson is a vital component of the chapter "Making and Representing Fractions," designed to build a strong foundation in understanding how fractions are represented on a number line, focusing particularly on fractions with the same numerator.

Throughout this lesson, students will engage in various activities, including the "Name That Fraction Worksheet," which will challenge them to identify fractions correctly. The "Number Line Matching Worksheet" will further reinforce their understanding by requiring them to match fractions to their correct positions on a number line. The "Machu Picchu Math Worksheet" introduces an element of fun and adventure, making learning about fractions exciting and memorable. Furthermore, the activity "Fractions on a Number Line Same Denominator and Same Numerator (Use Fourths for the Same Denominator)" will deepen their understanding of fractions that have the same numerator and how they are represented in relation to each other on a number line.

Learning how to accurately place and identify fractions on a number line is crucial.

• ### Activity 1 / Name That Fraction Worksheet

It is important to be able to name fractions if your child is going to be able to properly solve equations. Fractions are quite easy to understand and solve, but the first thing your child must learn is how to correctly identify and name them. In this worksheet, there are three equations that need solving. Underneath the fractions is a number line. Your child’s task is to figure out and circle the fraction that matches each point on the number line.

• ### Activity 2 / Number Line Matching Worksheet

‘Fun’ and ‘Mathematics’ are not too words that are usually used in the same sentence. However, your child is sure to have some fun learning mathematics with this traceable worksheet. The first thing your child must do is count the points correctly on the number line. Then, they must correctly identify the fractions above the number lines, and trace a line to place each fraction on the correct point on the number line.

• ### Activity 3 / Machu Picchu Math Worksheet

The family in this worksheet went on a trip. If your family has taken a lot of trips together, then maybe your kids will have some memories to draw reference to. Can your kids tell you some countries or landmarks that stand out in their memory? James and his family, in this worksheet, take a trip to Peru to explore Machu Picchu. Your kids will need to figure out how much of Machu Picchu James explores every single day. Read the questions out to your kids and then help them check the correct point on the number lines to represent each fraction.
