Equivalent Fractions Cards
A set of 30 cards displaying various equivalent fractions.
Use these flashcards in a variety of ways when teaching fractions to your students.
Some ways to use these cards:
- Play a game of Memory matching the equivalent fractions.
- Play a game of Go Fish matching the equivalent fractions.
- Have students build a number line from 0 to 1, placing the equivalent fractions below each other.
- Have students flip over two cards and write a comparative statement using both fractions.
- Have students find a pair of equivalent fractions and use pictorial models to show their equivalency.
These flashcards work beautifully when printed on cardstock and placed into a math center.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.

- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.2.A
Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on t...
- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3.A
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3.B
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.1
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to ...
- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.2
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions ref...
