• Represent and identify unit fractions using area and length models.

NC.3.NF.2: Interpret fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using area and length models. • Using an area model, explain that the numerator of a fraction represents the number of equal parts of the unit fraction. • Using a number line, explain that the numerator of a fraction represents the number of lengths of the unit fraction from 0.

NC.3.NF.3 Represent equivalent fractions with area and length models by: • Composing and decomposing fractions into equivalent fractions using related fractions: halves, fourths and eighths; thirds and sixths. • Explaining that a fraction with the same numerator and denominator equals one whole. • Expressing whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers.
