# Simplifying Fractions

In this lesson, students will learn how to simplify fractions.

First, you will copy the worksheet so that each student will have one.

Then, you will explain to the students how to simplify fractions.

Example: 2/10 = 1/5 4/6 = 2/3 4/24 = 1/6

7/8 = 7/8 (Already simplified)

You find a number that you can divide both the top and bottom numbers by. You need to simplify the fractions to the lowest one.

After that, you will pass out the worksheet so that students can work on them independently.
