Fractions On A Number Line

Directions: Using the digits 0 to 5 at most one time each, place a digit to create five fractions and place them all on a number line with the correct order and spacing.




There are many ways to approach this problem. For example students might use random digits and then carefully measure a whole into equal portions to determine placement. Alternatively, students might get strategically creative and do things like create the fractions 2/2, 3/3, 1/4, 0/6, and 4/8 so that they only have to place 1, 1, 1/4, 0, and 1/2.
