Identify equivalent fractions and explain why they are equivalent.
can be identified as equivalent using number lines.
Example: The fractions and can be identified as not equivalent using a visual model.
Instruction includes identifying equivalent fractions and explaining why they are equivalent using manipulatives, drawings, and number lines.
Clarification 2: Within this benchmark, the expectation is not to generate equivalent fractions.
Clarification 3: Fractions are limited to fractions less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12. Number lines must be given and scaled appropriately.
