A number line is a very useful representation to compare fractions, i.e., “given two fractions—thus two points on the number line—the one to the left is said to be smaller and the one to the right is said to be larger” (NF Progression, p. 9). Thus, while Lessons 21 and 22 included tasks related to all models they’ve encountered throughout the unit, Lesson 23’s tasks include contexts or explicit referral to length models (namely, tape diagrams and number lines) in preparation for Lesson 24’s deeper analysis of the benefit of a number line to compare fractions.

For the class party, Robin and Shawn each made a loaf of banana bread. Their loaf pans were exactly the same size. Robin sliced her banana bread into 6 equal slices. Shawn also sliced his into 6 equal slices. After the party, Robin had more slices of banana bread left to take home than Shawn did. What fraction of the whole loaf pan might each person take home?
