    Are these fractions equivalent to 1/4?

    Overview

    I use this help students make sense of equivalent fractions and deepen their understanding.  It gives students an opportunity to work with fractions that are equivlanet to 1/4, but also identify fractions that are not equivalent to 1/4.  This activity will reinforce the concept that when making equivalent fractions the numerator and denominator need to be multiplied by the same number.  It's like multiplying by a whole or one, that's why the fractions are equivalent.
