In this interactive activity a user identifies two pairs of equivalent fractions for a given random fraction or one of the player's own and the user creates their representations by dividing and shading either a square or circular region. The fractions are shown as locations on the number line and their equivalency is demonstrated when they are at the same point. The user has the ability to construct a table of equivalent fractions. Instructions and exploration questions are given.

In this four-day lesson students use several models to explore equivalent fractions and to compare proper fractions with denominators of values up to 12. It incorporates the book "The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar Fractions Book" by Jerry Pallotta. The 30-page pdf includes lists of materials, teacher instructions, printable activity sheets, assessments, and a game.

In this Cyberchase activity the Cybersquad must compare fractions with unlike denominators. Students try the activity before seeing the Cybersquads solution of dividing sections to make equal denominators; students can compare their solutions with the Cybersquad's solution. The activity includes one short video, a student worksheet, and two assessment options.
