# Benchmark Fraction Bars

**Benchmark Fraction Bars** – these are an excellent tool for students to use to compare fractions, find equivalent fractions, and add fractions

**Fraction Bars** – More fractions than the Benchmark Fraction Bars are included on this page (up to 1/12)

**CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.3d** Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

**CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.A.1 **Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
