## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Equivalent fractions have different numerators and denominators but represent the same value.
- Equivalent fractions have the same position on a number line.
- Equivalent fractions represent the same quantity or area.

### Common misconception

Children learn how to spot and create equivalent fractions without realising that they have the same value and have the same position on a number line. The understanding of equivalence is important.

Use the = symbol to record fractions with the same value and the language 'is equal to'. Make use of manipulatives and representations to model equivalence and highlight the equality.

### Keywords
