              Equivalent Fractions

              To visualise equivalent fractions students are first given illustrations in the form of a fraction wall and spider diagram.  The numerical method is then modeled for the students to consolidate and enhance their visual understanding.  The equivalence symbol is introduced later in the lesson to emphasize the numerical method.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify fractions using a diagram.
              • Most students should be able to calculate equivalent fractions using a written method.
              • Some students should be able to order fractions using equivalences through a written method.
