Todays Math Standards
• Number Sense 1.0 (this is what we are working
toward)
• Students compare and order positive and negative
fractions, decimals, and mixed numbers. Students
solve problems involving fractions, ratios,
proportions, and percentages
• Number Sense 2.4
• Determine the least common multiple and the
greatest common divisor of whole numbers use
them to solve problems with fractions (e.g., to
find a common denominator to add two fractions or
to find the reduced form for a fraction).

Equivalent Fractions
• We use the GCF and the LCM to make equivalent
fractions
• GCF to make smaller equivalent fractions
• Reduce
• Simplify
• Put in lowest terms
• LCM to make equivalent fractions
• Make common denominators
• Subtraction
• Comparing (with and without number lines)

5
Key Vocabulary
• equivalent fractions
• Fractions that name the same number
• improper fraction
• A fraction whose numerator is larger than the
denominator
• mixed number
• A whole number and a fraction

6
Equivalent Fractions
Notice how all three of the rectangles still have
these same 5 rows. The only thing that has
changed is the number of columns.
Different fractions can name the same number.
