From Wholes to Parts: Operating with Factors, Multiples, and Fractions

Students use the number sense they have developed with whole numbers to begin investigating fractions. Building on whole number concepts of prime factorization and multiples, students develop an understanding of equivalent fractions and common denominators. The unit ends with the exploration and practice of the four basic operations with fractions.
