**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Equivalent fractions We are learning about equivalent fractions**1 whole**½ ½ ¼ ¼ ¼ ¼ 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 We can see that 1/1= 2/2 = 4/4 = 8/8 They are equivalent fractions**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 We can see that 2/8 is the same length as 1/4 So 2/8 = 1/4 They are equivalent fractions**1 whole**½ ¼ ¼ 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Which fractions are equivalent to ½? 1/2= 2/4 = 4/8**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Which of these fractions is equivalent to1/4? 2/8 1/8 1/2**Whoops**try again!**Well done!**That's right**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Which of these fractions is equivalent to4/8? 2/4 1/4**Whoops**try again!**Well done!**That's right**1 whole**1/3 1/3 1/3 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 = = 1/3 2/6 4/12 Look at the equivalent fractions – each time the numerators double, the denominators also double. Which other fraction will be equivalent? 8/24 6/24 4/24**Think of a pizza cut into six pieces**How many sixths are equivalent to ½?**1 whole**1/3 1/3 1/3 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 Comparing Fractions Which is greater? 1/3 or 4/6 4/6**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Comparing Fractions Which is greater? ½ or 5/8 5/8**1 whole**1/3 1/3 1/3 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 1/12 Comparing Fractions • Which is greater? 6/12 or 2/3 2/3**1 whole**1/2 1/2 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 Comparing Fractions • Which is greater? 6/8 or ¾ They are equal.**Equivalent Fractions**• To find equivalent fractions, you can either Multiply or Divide. 1 = x 2 = 2 3 x 2 6**Equivalent Fractions**• To find equivalent fractions, you can either Multiply or Divide. 6 = ÷ 2 = 3 8 ÷ 2 4**Multiply or Divide?**• 1 = 4 2 8 Multiply by 4**Multiply or Divide?**• 4 = 2 10 5 Divide by 2**Multiply or Divide?**• 6 = 3 12 6 Divide by 2**Multiply or Divide?**• 4 = 8 5 10 Multiply by 2**Multiply or Divide?**• 6 = 3 8 4 Divide by 2**Now we’ve learned what equivalent fractions are –**let’s find some ourselves. Good Luck!
