3.NF.A.3a

Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.3.NF.A.3

Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.3.NF.A.2b

Represent a fraction*a*/*b*on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/*b*from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size*a*/*b*and that its endpoint locates the number*a*/*b*on the number line.3.NF.A.2a

Represent a fraction 1/*b*on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into*b*equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/*b*and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/*b*on the number line.3.NF.A.2

Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.3.NF.A.1

Understand a fraction 1/*b*as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into*b*equal parts; understand a fraction*a*/*b*as the quantity formed by*a*parts of size 1/*b*.2.G.A.3

Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
