Equivalent Fractions

This interactive Java applet presents an array of common fractions sometimes referred to as a wall. Fractions less than one with denominators from 2 through 16 are placed to scale horizontally. The learner then moves a mouse to highlight equivalent sets of fractions vertically. Links to related topics are included.

    • This fraction wall which is intended to show fraction equivalents works well. The patterns on the wall can have added benefits in other topics – comparing, trends, asymptotic behavior.
