Explain why two or more fractions are equivalent 𝑎/𝑏 = (𝑛 × 𝑎)/(𝑛 × 𝑏) ex: 1/4 = (3 × 1)/(3 × 4) by using visual fraction models. Focus attention on how the number and size of the parts differ even though the fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
