Updated: Nov 12, 2023

This post explains and gives practice opportunities related to TEKS 3.3A:

represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using concrete objects and pictorial models, including strip diagrams and number lines


Fractions play a key part in 3rd grade mathematics. In this standard, fractions are proper (less than or equal to one) and use specific denominators - 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8.

One of the most difficult representations of fractions to master for 3rd graders is the use of number lines. Watch the video below to learn more.
