Unit 1: Fractions
Lesson 8 of 22

Objective: SWBAT write fractions in their lowest term by drawing models and/or using division and multiplication.

Big Idea: Fractions can be written in lowest term by finding an equivalent fraction using division. Multiplication is the inverse of division, therefore, it can be used to help solve the division problem. A model can also be used to determine equivalency.
