Understanding Equivalence: Using Fraction Circles to Compare 3/6 and 4/8

Understanding Equivalence: Using Fraction Circles to Compare 3/6 and 4/8

National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video demonstrates how students can practice determining equivalent fractions with different denominators using fraction circles. Students can explore this concept by comparing different representations of the same value against a whole fraction circle. After students have found one representation of the same fraction (3/6), teachers can encourage students to find another representation (4/8). Teachers can then ask students to discuss the patterns that they see in the different representations of the same value.
