1/2 through 1/20.....Students with a math disability (or all students) can find equivalent fractions by using a bookmark to line up the lines to see what other fractions are equivalent. They can find equivalent fractions and simplify fractions on this chart without doing calculations. To simplify, have them find the fraction and then move upward on the chart to the "simplest (smallest)" fraction. This allows them to see what is being done before calculation steps are taught. The color coding (with an explanation at the bottom) helps alert students to factors of 3, 5, and 7 as well as noting which fractions have no factors. You can tell students that this is 1 candy bar which is cut into different size pieces. This also helps them visualize simple word problems that require fraction work.
