Unit 5, Lesson 6# Decompose fractions using area models to show equivalence

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use and area model to show that 3/4 is equal to 6/8. Then, students use an area model to show the equivalence of two fractions and show the equivalence as the sum and product of unit fractions. Finally, students divide an area model into smaller parts and show the decomposition of a fraction into equivalent fractions.
