### 1/27/2014 HOMEWORK

Thank you math-aids.com, I love your worksheets

### DO YOU REMEMBER???????

Did a quick assessment to make sure students were ready to move on to adding fractions. Everyone had a little trouble with questions set #3 (as I suspected) and so we changed course a bit and practice simplifying. Students just needed a quick reminder and they were on their way.

### EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS

Students were given a quick time to discover the missing numbers. As I walked around monitoring everyone working, I saw students who knew exactly what to put and others who were trying to develop a method that would work. We shared the correct answers and then discussed the 2 methods for determining if fractions are equivalent.

Pizza Fractions

METHOD #1 - CROSS MULTIPLY

METHOD #2 - WORK ACROSS

SIMPLIFYING A FRACTIONS IS ALSO CREATING AN EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS
Use the "L" method to simplify the 2 numbers in the fraction
