Our Understand a Rational Number lesson plan teaches students all about rational numbers, including what they are and how they are used in math problems. During this lesson, students are asked to practice placing specific rational numbers on a number line. Students are also asked to explain how they decided where a number should be placed, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material and how fractions are shown on number lines.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand a rational number as a point on the number line.
