Your students will explore fraction equivalence through multiplication and the area model by slicing up Valentine's cakes with this project. Given amounts of left over cake, students will "shade in", or decorate the given fraction, and solve to find the equivalent fraction through slicing the cakes up more.
Have students work independently as an assessment task, or work in partners or groups to collaborate.
