Students must be able to show how far fractional values of halves, fourths, and eighths are from zero on a number line.
On the number line below, place a dot 5/8 of the distance between 0 and 1. Be sure to place appropriate tick marks on the line and explain how you know how many are needed and where they should be placed.
