The Fractions Activity above is aligned (or partially aligned) with standard 4NF01 from the Common Core Standards For Mathematics (see the truncated extract below) as are the resources listed below.
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.
- Equivalent Fraction Cards #2 (matching equivalent fractions. e.g. 6/15 = 2/5 – slightly harder)
- Comparing Fractions (2 of 4) – using common denominators
- Equivalent Fractions (1 of 3) e.g. 1/3 = 3/9
- Equivalent Fractions (2 of 3) e.g. 9/3 = 1/3
- Equivalent Fractions (3 of 3)
- Reducing Fractions – Simplest Form e.g. 6/12 = 1/2
- Comparing Fractions (1 of 4) – two fractions – includes with fraction bar
