Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Author: Carol Linderman

Students will be able to:

1) Define the math terms reduce/simplify and Greatest Common Factor (GCF)

2) Find the factors and GCF of a set of numbers (numerator/denominator)

3) Reduce fractions using the GCF.

This video guides students through the process of reducing/simplifying fractions.  The last two pages of the video are the pages I would use as their homework and how I would assess their understanding of the concept during the next class meeting.
