Product Description
This unit will help your students understand when fractions need to be reduced into a simpler form by following a step-by-step guide. Students will use a companion worksheet as they follow along with the PPT to deepen their understanding of this concept. This unit includes a detailed 14-page PPT along with a 1 page companion worksheet and an answer guide. This activity will take 1-2 days to complete depending on the amount of time of your math class.

In the past, my students have struggled with when to simplify a fraction. Have you seen these same issues? They want to simplify ALL the fractions, NONE of the fractions, or a combination of hit and miss by choosing random fractions to simplify.

I made this PPT to use in my classroom and it really deepened my students understanding of this tricky concept. Now, students have a better understanding of when (and more importantly WHY) a fraction needs to be simplified. This Power Point will teach your students rules of simplifying fractions and take away the hit or miss when reducing those fractions.

Students will learn that some fractions never need to be reduced. They will also learn that there are rules other than just looking for the greatest common factor (GCF) to use for simplifying fractions (although this is included also).

Your students will be pros at simplifying fractions after completing this PPT in the classroom and will be set on the road for success!
