# Number Lined Fractions

## Worksheet Description

The worksheet is a mathematical resource designed to practice fraction subtraction by using number lines as visual models. It consists of four sets of problems (labeled A to D), each accompanied by a number line divided into fractions. Students are tasked with determining the difference between the fractions indicated by the curved lines above the number line and writing the corresponding subtraction equation. This visual method helps to clearly show the concept of subtracting parts of a whole represented by the number line.

The objective of the worksheet is to enhance students’ ability to subtract fractions by visualizing the operation on a number line. It teaches them to interpret the space between fractions as a subtraction problem, allowing for a more intuitive understanding of the concept. This approach can be particularly helpful for students who benefit from seeing a physical representation of abstract mathematical concepts.
