Essential Question
How can you use models to find equivalent fractions?
Answer:
Two fractions are equivalent (equal) if they are of the same size or are at the same point on a number line.

Materials Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (1) sheet of paper Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (2) crayon or color pencil

Two or more fractions that name the same amount are called equivalent fractions. You can use a sheet of paper
to model fractions equivalent to \(\frac{1}{2} \text {. }\)

A. First, fold a sheet of paper into two equal parts. Open the paper and count the parts.
There are 2 equal parts. Each part is \(\frac{1}{2}\) of the paper.
Shade one of the halves. Write \(\frac{1}{2}\) on each of the halves.
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (3)
B. Next, fold the paper in half two times. Open the paper.
Now there are 4 equal parts. Each part is \(\frac{1}{4}\) of the paper.
Write \(\frac{1}{4}\) on each of the fourths.
Look at the shaded parts. \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{2}{4}\)
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (4)
C. Last, fold the paper in half three times.
Now there are 8 equal parts. Each part is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of the paper.
Write \(\frac{1}{8}\) on each of the eighths.
So,
\(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{4}{8}\)
Find the fractions equivalent to \(\frac{1}{2}\) on your paper.
So,
\(\frac{1}{2}\), \(\frac{2}{4}\), and \(\frac{4}{8}\) are equivalent.

Explain how the number of sixths in a distance on the number line is related to the number of thirds in the same distance.
Answer:
The given number line is:
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (7)
Now,
We know that,
\(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × \(\frac{1}{3}\)
So,
We will obtain the sixths by dividing \(\frac{1}{3}\) into 2 parts
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
The number of sixths in a distance on the number line is \(\frac{1}{2}\) times the number of thirds in the same distance

Step 1
Draw a point on the number line to represent the distance \(\frac{2}{3}\).
Answer:
The given number line is:
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (8)
Hence,
The representation of \(\frac{2}{3}\) on the given number line is:
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (9)

Step 2
Use fraction strips to divide the number line into sixths. At the end of each strip, draw a mark on the number line and label the marks to show sixths.
Answer:
The given number line is:
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (10)
Hence,
The representation of the sixths on the given number line is:
Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 3.4 Answer Key Model Equivalent Fractions (11)

Step 3
Identify the fraction that names the same point as \(\frac{2}{3}\).
So, \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{6}\)

FAQs

How to solve the equivalent fraction? ›

To find equivalent fractions, we multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number, so we need to multiply the denominator of 7 by a number that will give us 21. Since 3 multiplied by 7 gives us 21, we can find an equivalent fraction by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 3.

What is the easiest way to teach equivalent fractions? ›

Dominoes are great for (one) naming fractions and (two) finding equivalent fractions. Students must first determine which side is the numerator and which side is the denominator (bigger). Then, they can find other dominoes that are equivalent fractions to the first, with bigger and smaller numbers!

How do you find equivalent fractions quickly? ›

To find the equivalent fractions for any given fraction, multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number. For example, to find an equivalent fraction of 3/4, multiply the numerator 3 and the denominator 4 by the same number, say, 2. Thus, 6/8 is an equivalent fraction of 3/4.

What is an equivalent fraction in the classroom? ›

Equivalent fractions are fractions with the same value. For example: 1/2 and 5/10. Children can begin to explore equivalent fractions using concrete materials (folding and cutting strips of paper, for example) before moving on to visual representations, such as fraction strips, bar models or a fraction wall.

What are equivalent fractions primary 3? ›

Equivalent fractions are two or more fractions that are all equal even though they different numerators and denominators. For example the fraction 1/2 is equivalent to (or the same as) 25/50 or 500/1000. Each time the fraction in its simplest form is 'one half'.

What is an equivalent calculator? ›

Equivalent Expression Calculator is a free online tool that displays the equivalent expressions for the given algebraic expression. BYJU'S online equivalent expression calculator tool makes the calculations and simplification faster and it displays the equivalent expression in a fraction of seconds.

How do you find the equivalent fractions of Year 3? ›

To find an equivalent fraction you can just double the numerator and the denominator. Prove it. Write a rule that is sometimes true about equivalent fractions. The denominators of equivalent fractions are even numbers.

How do you solve equivalent expressions with fractions? ›

Step 1: Ensure the fractions have a common denominator. Step 2: Add or subtract the fractions to find the new coefficient. Step 3: Simplify the sum or difference if needed and put this new coefficient in front of your variable(s) to find your equivalent term.
