4.NF.1 Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
This number and operations--fractions lesson teaches students how to generate equivalent fractions. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will create equivalent fractions. This lesson focuses on changing a fraction to another. Students are provided a variety of strategies and support to visualize the equivalence. Real-world examples are also provided.
