### Learning Target 1:

I can recognize and create equivalent fractions. This means I can...
• create equivalent fractions by using visual models.
• explain how two fractions that look different may be equivalent.
• explain how the number and size of the parts of two equivalent fractions are related.
• explain why two fractions are equivalent by using visual models.
• create an equivalent fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same whole number (other than zero).

### Learning Target 2:

I can compare fractions referring to the same or equal wholes. This means I can...
• use benchmark fractions, common denominators or common numerators.
• arrange fractions in order on a number line (including a line plot)
• record fraction comparisons by using symbols (<, =, >)

### Learning Target 3:

I can explain how fractions and decimals relate to each other. This means I can...
• explain that decimals are another way to write fractions.
• write a fraction with a denominator of 10 or 100 as a decimal.
• express a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.
• add two fractions with denominators of tenths and hundredths.

### Learning Target 4:

I can compare decimals referring to the same or equal wholes. This means I can...
• explain how the place value system for whole numbers extends to decimals.
• compare decimal numbers to hundredths by reasoning about their size.
• arrange decimals in order and record decimal comparisons by using symbols (<,=,>).

### Learning Target 5:

I can add and subtract fractions (including mixed numbers) with like denominators. This means I can…
• explain with diagrams, words and numbers that addition and subtraction of fractions is joining and separating fractions that refer to the same or equal wholes.
• use addition and subtraction strategies based on properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction to solve problems.
• replace mixed numbers with equivalent fractions, when needed, in order to add and subtract them.

### Learning Target 6:

I can multiply a fraction by a whole number. This means I can…
• interpret a product of a whole number and fraction as a combination of equal groups.
• represent a fraction as a multiple of unit fractions by using visual fraction models and equations.
• represent multiplication of a fraction by a whole number using visual fraction models and equations.

### Learning Target 7:

I can solve word problems involving fractions. This means I can...
• represent and solve word problems by using visual fraction models, line plots, and equations.
• solve word problems involving the addition and subtraction of mixed numbers with like denominators where the fractions refer to the same or equal wholes.
• solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number.
