2 Identify the fraction below. parts shaded total parts

3 Equivalent Fractions Fractions name the same amount but have different numerators and denominators. They are sometimes called equal fractions. 1 2 =

4 Identity Property states that any number multiplied by one equals itself This is useful to know so you can find a common denominator for adding and subtracting fractions.

5 The Giant One is used to find equivalent fractions. It is used to reduce or simplify fractions. The giant one works because of the Identity Property.

6 Many Forms The Giant One There are an infinite number of ways to write any fraction. Identity Property

9 To find equivalent fractions multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number. To find equivalent fractions multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number = GIANT ONE

10 Find 4 equivalent fractions for the fraction

11 Find 4 equivalent fractions for the fraction

12 To Put Fractions in Simplest Form: Find the greatest common factor factor of the numerator and the denominator and divide both the numerator and the denominator by that number ÷ 6 6 =

13 When the only common factor of the numerator and the denominator is 1, the fraction is in simplest form ÷ 1 1 =

14 Identify each fraction below. Reduce!

15 Identify each fraction below. Reduce!

16 Simplify the following fractions.

17 Simplify the following fractions.

18 Simplify the using GCF.

19 THE END! Take out your study guide.

20 Equivalent fractions name the same amount or the same part of a whole. You use the giant one to show equivalent fractions. Ex: #1 A fraction shows: Parts Shaded Total Parts Numerator Denominator

21 The Giant One is used to reduce or simplify fractions. #2 To find the simplest form divide the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor.
