What educators are saying

I used this at the beginning of 6th grade. This was very helpful reminding them how to simplify fractions.
I used this as a whole group lesson with guided practice on the promethean board. My students enjoyed the interaction and experienced success in reducing fractions.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 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.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
