Clothesline Math – The Master Number Sense Maker
The Clothesline is a manipulatable number line that makes the facilitation of class discourse on number sense much more efficient and effective. The Clothesline is dynamic, meaning that the "benchmark" numbers may be adjusted when needed, as well as the values that are placed on the line. My friend and colleague, Tim McCaffery of Fontana

Welcome to the Clothesline, one of the greatest tools for teaching number sense. The dynamic nature of the Clothesline makes it more cognitively challenging, yet more engaging and easily facilitated, than a traditional, static number line.
Lesson: Clothesline Fractions - BetterLesson
Plan your lesson in Number Sense and Operations and Math with helpful tips from teachers like you. Given sets of fractions/whole numbers (i.e. 1/2, 3/4, 1), students will compare/order and place fractions on a clothesline strung across the room.
Fraction Talks Clothesline - (Parentheses), [Brackets] and
A spot in the center of the clothesline was 1/2. The next time I do this activity, I think it might be helpful to create some benchmark cards to hang on the number line. When participants had different ways of shading the same fraction, we used clothes pins to connect them together on the clothesline to show that they were equivalent.

Fraction Talks and Clothesline Math. June 26, 2018 August 22, 2018 / Nat Banting. This post details how Fraction Talks has been combined with a critical grade school understanding: the number line. It is an amazing mash-up of resources, and one of my personal favourite ways to
The Intersection of Fraction Talks and Clothesline Math
Planning Task #1: The Clothesline. That’s when I stumbled upon Tamara DeFord’s blog post about the intersection of fraction talks and clothesline math: I selected several images from Fraction Talks–all designed from the same unit square–representing a range of difficulty. Anticipating
Clothesline | Math Minds
The other day I did this fraction clothesline activity with a 5th grade class and today I had the chance to do it again with another 5th grade teacher, Leigh. It is always so nice to get to have a do-over after having time to reflect and think more about what the students thought about both during and after the activity.
Fraction Comparisons on a Clothesline - National Council
The following Fraction Clothesline activity, adapted from the Illuminations Fractional Clothesline lesson (NCTM 2015) is an example of an engaging activity that requires thought and communication to compare fractions, not just procedures. Required Materials. About 25 feet of rope; Clothespins
5th Grade Fraction Clothesline | Math Minds
Today, I had the chance to plan and teach with a 5th grade teacher and it was awesome! Last week, this class had just finished a bunch of 100s grid shading in thinking about fraction/percent equivalencies, so we picked up planning the lesson in Investigations with the fraction/percent equivalent strips. Instead of the 10-minute math activity
