Included in this product is a FREE mini anchor chart for using the fraction butterfly (aka cross multiplying) to:
1. compare fractions with different denominators,
2. find a pair of equivalent fractions with a common denominator, and
3. add & subtract fractions with different denominators.

The fraction butterfly provides a visual way to remember the strategy for adding & subtracting fractions in the CCSS 5.NF.A.1 (a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd), but also can be used to compare fractions and find a pair of equivalent fractions with a common denominator – part of the CCSS 4.NF.A.2.
