Understand and explain equivalent fractions using fraction models (1)

Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/(n x 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.

Lessons

  • Create equivalent fractions using an area model

    In this lesson you will learn to create equivalent fractions by multiplying both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number and looking at an area model.

  • Create equivalent fractions using a number line

    In this lesson you will learn to create equivalent fractions by multiplying both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number and looking at number lines.
