Estimating with Benchmark Fractions

Teachers can use this interactive tool to help students develop fraction sense. After a teacher places a fraction, decimal, or expression on the screen, students determine which given benchmark number it is closest to. An adjustable number line supports conceptual understanding. This page includes a video demonstration of the tool and sample lessons from the Conceptua curriculum. Free registration is required to use the tool. A paid subscription is necessary to access full curriculum and allow full student use.
