Fraction Resources

A huge variety of fraction resources. Within each section, the resources get progressively more difficult to help you better differentiate. Many of the resources are scaffold to improve student understanding of fractions.

These resources are divided into 5 sections: Understanding the Fraction 1/2, Comparing Fractions to 1/2, Fractions on a Number Line, Equivalent Fractions, and Additional Fraction Resources.
