This wall is 1 unit wide.

What fractions does it show?

Explain how it shows that two quarters are equivalent to one half $$\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}$$.

To each of the following fractions write down all the equivalent fractions you can see:

a. three quarters,  b. five sixths,  c. six sixteenths  d. seven twelfth,  e. six twentyfourths

Using the picture, can you find and explain any rules for finding equivalent fractions?

Using the picture, can you find and explain any rules for checking whether two fractions are equivalent?

How many red bits (twelfths) are equivalent to one blue bit (one half)?

How many red bits (twelfths) are equivalent to two brown bits (two thirds)?

Use the fraction wall to find how many purple and dark green bits give the answer to $$\frac{1}{2} + \frac{2}{3} + \frac{5}{12}$$
