In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students use relationship rods to explore fraction relationships. Relationship rods are wooden or plastic rods in ten different colors. They range in length from one to ten centimeters. Each length is a different color. This work with relationships lays the foundation for work with more challenging fraction concepts.
