How can two different fractions be equal?

Discuss your reasoning with a partner.... Two different fractions can be equal by....


The two circles and two number lines shown are the same size.

a. Shade 1/2 of the left circle and shade 2/4 of the right b. Label 1/2 on the left number line and 2/4 on the rightnumber line.

Interactive Question

Different fractions that name the same amount of the whole are equivalent fractions.

Circle the pair of models that shows that 1/2 and 2/4 are equivalent.

How did you know which pair of models to circle in Part a?

Once you make sure the wholes are the same size, look at the size of the parts in each whole to name equivalent fractions.

a. let's label each part of the models at the right with the unit fraction it represents. b. shade the top model to show 1/2 c. shade the second model to show 1/2.. how many parts did you shade? d. shade the third model to show 1/2.. how many parts did you shade? e. shade the last model to show 1/2... how many parts did you shade?
