Use fraction models, strip diagrams and number lines to determine equivalent fractions with this worksheet pack.
Model Equivalent Fractions
When students first learn to work with equivalent fractions, using fraction models can be particularly important. Students need to physically see how the amount of the model that is shaded can be the same even though there are different numbers of pieces. Students learn to recognise that if the piece size is smaller, they will need more pieces to cover the same amount of the figure.
Teach Starter has designed a set of 3 worksheets to help your students visualise and calculate equivalent fractions. With this downloadable teaching resource, you will be able to guide your students’ understanding of equivalent fractions with
- fraction strips
- fraction circles
- number lines.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided maths groups
- Lesson warm-up
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
Students who need a challenge should create their own problems and swap with a peer.
Students who struggle should be allowed to use manipulatives to represent each problem visually.
