Visual Fractions: Rename to Lowest Terms

This interactive Flash applet provides students with practice in renaming proper fractions in their lowest terms. Students are shown a fraction and a diagram of it in a unit circle. The student enters the reduced fraction, gets feedback, and when correct is shown a second picture of the equivalent fraction. Instruction in the form of printed and Flash animation examples is provided. This activity is also available in line segment (ribbon) mode from the Rename page.
