Some progress on how we look at fractions.

To find out if fractions are equal we might:

“Double the fraction (top and bottom) = ½ = 2/4″

“Use math strips (fraction strips) – the ones that “line up” are equal.”

“Use percents = if you switch a fraction to percent, you can see if it is equal to another fraction.”

***1/5 = 2/10** AND **9/9 = J/J = 1 (whole)** AND **1/2 = 3/6, 5/10, 6/12**

***2/6 = 4/12, 1/3**

***3/6 = 6/12, 5/10, 4/8, 2/4**
