Unit 5, Lesson 5# Decompose unit fractions using area models to show equivalence

EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students show 1/5 is equal to 2/10 by drawing an area model. Students use an area model to show the decomposition of 1/3 as 4/12 as the sum and product of unit fractions. Students also use an area model to show that 1/2 equals 5/10 and show the decompositions as the sum and products of unit fractions.
