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
- Addition
- Subtraction
- Comparing (with and without number lines)

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

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.
