Simplifying Fractions

We have already learned about equivalent fractions, fractions with different numbers for the numerators and denominators, but which are of equal value.  For example, 2/4 and 1/2 mean the same amount.  The equivalent fraction with the smallest possible numerator and denominator is called the simplest form.  Finding the simplest form for a fraction is called reducing it.

Today's homework:
     1.  Read for half an hour.
     2.  Math: p. 515-516
     3.  If you could be any animal, what would it be.  Explain.
