Subject: Re: Re: How can I teach equivalent fractions?

I suppose having the kids draw circles using compasses and then use
protractors to mark the appropriate angles; then have them cut all
them out would be a perfect intro to operations with fractions. But
using compasses and protractors comes much later in the pacing plan. 
However, the above project would provide good motivation for students
to correctly learn how to use these tools...then when geometry comes
later, they'll get the concepts faster(I HOPE!)
