Storyboard Text

  • Did you know that sometimes fractions can look different, but represent the same amount?
  • I don't understand. How can two fractions be the same?
  • Panic!
  • That's an excellent question! Can I get two volunteers to come up to the board?
  • Becky, I want you to write a fraction that represents the number of students in the class that are up at the board.
  • 2 ---- 4
  • Blake, I want you to take what Becky wrote and divide both numbers by 2, then write your new fraction.
  • 2 ---- 4
  • This is an example of two various fractions that look different but equal the same amount. Does this make more sense now?
  • 2 / 2 = 1   4 / 2 = 2     1  ----        2
