With the discrete model, choosing the unit to illustrate given equivalent fractions takes some thought. Just any number of objects may not fit the fractions well; a set of Four objects would not work for showing 24=36\frac{2}{4}=\frac{3}{6}, e.g. Describe a usable unit for showing that each of the following pairs of fractions is equivalent. Then show each fraction on a separate sketch of the unit, in such a way that the equivalence is visually clear. If a context is given, make your sketch to fit that context. a. 45=810\frac{4}{5}=\frac{8}{10} \quad Context: popsicle sticks b. 69=46\frac{6}{9}=\frac{4}{6} \quad Context: marbles (Do you have the smallest unit?) c. 23=46\frac{2}{3}=\frac{4}{6} \quad Context: children d. 23=1218\frac{2}{3}=\frac{12}{18} Context: Choose your own.
