Grade 3 Mathematics Module 5, Topic E, Overview

Girl in Classroom

In Topic E, they notice that some fractions with different units are placed at the exact same point on the number line, and therefore are equal (3.NF.3a).  For example, 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, and 4/8 are equivalent fractions (3.NF.3b).  Students recognize that whole numbers can be written as fractions.
