To reinforce your understanding and test your skills, we’ve created a set of flashcards and a practice video. These tools will help you become proficient at locating fractions greater than 1 on the number line, ensuring you master this essential math skill.

## Plotting Fractions Greater Than 1: A Step-by-Step Guide

###### Example 1: Plotting 7/6

**Identify the Points**: Start with 0 and note that each subsequent mark represents 1/6.**Count the Spaces**: To find 7/6, count each sixth from 0.**Locate 7/6 on the Line**: Count seven spaces from 0. Thus, 7/6 is located at the seventh mark.

###### Example 2: Identifying 9/4

**Identify the Points**: Start with 0 and note that each subsequent mark represents 1/4.**Count the Spaces**: To find 9/4, count each fourth from 0.**Locate 9/4 on the Line**:From 0 to 1: 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4.

From 1 to 2: 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 8/4.

9/4 is one mark beyond 2.**Verify the Location**: The third choice correctly places the dot at 9/4.

###### Example 3: Determining the Fraction at Point A

**Count the Spaces**: Determine the number of equal spaces between whole numbers.**Identify the Unit Fraction**: If there are six spaces, each represents 1/6.**Locate the Fraction**:From 0 to 1: 1/6, 2/6, 3/6, 4/6, 5/6, 6/6.

The next mark is 7/6.

Point A is at 7/6.
