Lesson Focus: Equivalent Fractions (2)


  • equivalent means same. 
  •  focus on how the number line can be divided into different amounts of equal parts and how this helps to find equivalent fractions e.g. a number line divided into twelfths can also represent halves, thirds, quarters and sixths. 

Key Questions:

  • Look at the number line divided into twelfths. Which unit fractions can you place on the number line as equivalent fractions? e.g.  1 /2 , 1 /3 , 1/ 4 , 1 /5 etc. Which unit fractions are not equivalent to twelfths?
