1. 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

2. 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

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 We can see that 2/8 is the same length as 1/4 So 2/8 = 1/4 They are equivalent fractions

4. 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

5. 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

6. Whoops try again!

7. Well done! That's right

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 1/8 Which of these fractions is equivalent to4/8? 2/4 1/4

9. Whoops try again!

10. Well done! That's right

11. 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

12. Think of a pizza cut into six pieces How many sixths are equivalent to ½?

13. 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

14. 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

15. 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

16. 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.

17. Equivalent Fractions • To find equivalent fractions, you can either Multiply or Divide. 1 = x 2 = 2 3 x 2 6

18. Equivalent Fractions • To find equivalent fractions, you can either Multiply or Divide. 6 = ÷ 2 = 3 8 ÷ 2 4

19. Multiply or Divide? • 1 = 4 2 8 Multiply by 4

20. Multiply or Divide? • 4 = 2 10 5 Divide by 2

21. Multiply or Divide? • 6 = 3 12 6 Divide by 2

22. Multiply or Divide? • 4 = 8 5 10 Multiply by 2

23. Multiply or Divide? • 6 = 3 8 4 Divide by 2

24. Now we’ve learned what equivalent fractions are – let’s find some ourselves. Good Luck!
