Using fractions strips, a demo of one half, and its equivalent fractions is given.
Rule: You can ONLY multiply/divide to make equivalent fraction... Whatever I do to the top, I've got to do to the bottom.
We multiplied to make the equiv. fractions. Thinking pattern demonstrated (curved lines lead to factor used to create the equiv. fraction, after Math Makes Sense styling).
Practise on 3/4. Several equivalent fractions made.
