Fractions & Decimals
5.MD.2. Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements
in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions
for this grade to solve problems involving information presented
in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid
in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would
contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
