Equivalent fractions 1 whole 1/21/2 1/21/2 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 We are learning about equivalent fractions

1 whole ½ ½ ¼ ¼ ¼ ¼ 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 We can see that 1/1 1/1 = 2/2 2/2 = 4/4 4/4 = 8/88/8 They are equivalent fractions

3
We can see that 2 / 8 is the same length as 1 / 4 So 2 / 8 = 1 / 4 They are equivalent fractions 1 whole 1/21/2 1/21/2 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8

4
½ ¼ ¼ 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 Which fractions are equivalent to ½? 1 whole 1 / 2 = 2 / 4 = 4 / 8

5
Which of these fractions is equivalent to 1 / 4 ? 2/82/8 1/81/8 1/21/2 1 whole 1/21/2 1/21/2 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/41/4 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8 1/81/8
