EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students create fraction strips and shade sections that show equivalent fractions (for example, 1/2, 2/4, and 4/8). Then they place these fractions on the number line and observe that they are all located at the same point. Finally, they express the relationship between equivalent fractions by writing equations (for example, 2/2 = 4/4 = 1).
