Why Teach Equivalent Fractions Using Visual Models?

Teaching equivalent fractions with visual models is crucial for 3rd grade students just beginning to grasp this abstract concept. Visual models, such as fraction strips or fraction charts, help students see that different fractions can represent the same quantity, which can be difficult to do when only numbers are used. Using these visual models also allows your students to manipulate and explore fractions hands-on, which helps with their comprehension and retention of the skill.
