Ten color-coded number lines divided into various fractional parts and labeled with applicable fraction and mixed number tags. Bright green line is divided into halves; pink lines are divided into thirds, etc. A set of ivory labels represents proper and improper fractions; white labels include simplified mixed numbers. Also aids understanding of linear measurement to sixteenths of an inch As an extension, students may place fraction labels on the decimal line.

Nine separate color-coded cardstock lines and nine sets of white cardstock tags. Blacklines for label replacement as well as for extensions also included. (Lamination recommended for heavy use; cutting required.)  Recommended Storage (not included): Twelve-inch by three-inch plastic organizer for lines;10 hardware drawers, boxes, or envelopes for tags.

• Twenty separate exercises - 10 proper, improper, mixed number tags, 5 free-response exercises involving mixed fraction lines, and 5 blank lines for extensions.

Recommended storage (not included): file

The teacher's experience and the sequence of skills in the students' basic math program are the best guides in determining which skills should be introduced first. In general, the scope and sequence chart above can be used as a guide.

A number of sets for younger children are "color coded." Some teachers present all the levels with an exercise set, while others prefer to present all the blue (two-digit) exercises, progress to the pink (three-digit), and culminate with the green (four-digit).

Other skills such as Roman Numerals require no prerequisites other rhan an understanding of place value.  Such exercises can be presented any time.
