Making Like Units Pictorially


Students make like units for all addends or both minuend and subtrahend. First, they draw a wide rectangle and partition it with vertical lines as they would a tape diagram, representing the first fraction with a bracket and shading. They then partition a second congruent rectangle with horizontal lines to show the second fraction. Next, they partition both rectangles with matching lines to create like units.
