Description: Sal uses same-sized wholes to show equivalent fractions. So if this bar right over here represents one whole, so the whole thing is shaded in with the purple color, my question to you is, which of these other bars, and there might be more than one of them, represent 1/2? If we're thinking about halves, and we just have one of them, let me just try to draw another bar here, it would look something like this. It's pretty good, I think you get the idea, that my intent is to draw these to be equal.
