This year, my students have been struggling with simplifying fractions. I created this packet to break down this challenging topic. The first page can be used as a personal anchor chart to remind them of the steps to simplify fractions. Other pages focus on specific patterns in numbers I wanted my students to recognize when they simplify fractions. For example, a numerator and denominator with two even numbers can be simplified by 2. At the end of the packet, I included a small quiz that can be used to assess their understanding of the concept.
