This packet teaches students step by step to 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.
Additionally students will learn to use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Along the way examples are provided for each step. At the end, students get the opportunity to practice what they have learned from the tutorial.
Each concept is presented in straightforward language, with several examples. Great for review and remediation, perfect for filling in learning gaps!
