Description: In Topic E, they identify equivalent fractions using fraction strips, number bonds, and the number line as models. Students compare fractions on the number line to recognize that equivalent fractions refer to the same whole. Equivalent fractions are different ways to represent the same number, the same point on the number line. Initially, students find equivalence in fractions less than 1 whole (e.g., 1 half = 2 fourths). Finally, students explain equivalence through manipulating units.*Teacher Advisor is 100% free.
