8.2 Do you still remember?
In our example
We call these fractions equivalent fractions.
Equivalent fractions are thus the same quantity or equal to each other
8.3 TAKE NOTE:
To form an equivalent fraction, you must multiply or divide the numerator AND denominator by THE SAME NUMBER.
e.g. 

= 

; 

= 

9. Join the fraction in column A with its equivalent in column B:
A  B  

















Learning Outcome 1:The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.
Assessment Standard 1.4: We know this when the learner recognises and uses equivalent forms of the rational numbers listed above, including:
1.4.1: common fractions;
1.11: recognises, describes and uses:
Learning Outcome 2:The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.
Assessment Standard 2.1: We know this when the learner investigates and extends numeric and geometric patterns looking for a relationship or rules, including patterns:
2.1.5: represented in tables.
