CCSS Progressions
Michael Battista describes "Critical Components to Understanding Fractions" in the first chapter of his book Cognition Based Assessment & Teaching of Fractions.

The CCSS follow learning progressions which support Battista's Critical Components. The following excerpt of Numeration, Operations and Algebraic Thinking highlights the development of fractions in the standards.

Developing Fraction Concepts
This article includes descriptions of foundational fraction concepts and activities that explore how to effectively teach those concepts.

Fraction Models
There is substantial evidence to suggest that the use of models in fractions tasks is important. The following document describes three types of models.
