 1. Write the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) for the denominators of the fractions below. 2. Write equivalent fractions by using the LCM as the denominator and circle the bigger fraction. The first one is done for you. 1⁄2  and  3⁄5  LCM = 10 5/10 and 6/10 4⁄5  and  5⁄6  LCM = 30 24/30 and 25/30 3⁄8  and  2⁄3  LCM = 24 9/24 and 16/24 5⁄6  and  3⁄4  LCM = 12 10/12 and 9/12 5⁄18  and  2⁄3  LCM = 36 10/36 and 24/36 7⁄12  and  5⁄9  LCM = 36 21/36 and 20/36 17⁄20  and  4⁄5  LCM = 20 17/20 and 16/20 3⁄10  and  1⁄6  LCM = 30 9/30 and 5/30 10⁄27  and  7⁄18  LCM = 54 20/54 and 21/54 1⁄3  and  8⁄25  LCM = 75 25/75 and 24/75 17⁄21  and  11⁄14  LCM = 42 34/42 and 33/42 13⁄16  and  11⁄12  LCM = 48 39/48 and 44/48

Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/(n x 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 recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
