This Week's Learning Topics:
3.NF.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
3.NF.2 Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
3.NF.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
What will we learn?
Last week, your child learned about unit fractions, which are formed by partitioning a whole into equal parts and reasoning about one part of a whole. He/she also learned to identify a fraction using a model and a number line.
This week, your child is learning to compare two different fractions using the greater than, less than, and equal to symbols. Once he/she can compare fractions, then putting fractions in order from greatest to least or from least to greatest will be quite easy.
