MCC3.NF.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by

reasoning about their size.

a. Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size or the same

point on a number line.

b. Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3).

Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

c. Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to

whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6;

locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.

d. Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by

reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two

fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the

symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction

model.
