A fraction wall that visually outlines equivalent fractions.
Equivalent fractions can be a tricky concept for students. Use this visual to help your students understand how two fractions with different denominators can represent the same whole.
Print this Fraction Wall Poster out on tabloid size or larger and put it up in your classroom. Print it out on letter-size for students to glue into their math journals to reference at home or while working in small groups or centers.

Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
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.
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 ...
