Fraction Butterfly Anchor Chart - cross multiply to find equivalent fractions to compare fractions or add & subtract fractions with different denominators. A visual reminder of the strategy for adding & subtracting fractions found in the CCSS 5.NF.A.1 (a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd). See http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/5/NF/A/1/. This is not intended to be taught on its own, but can serve as a reminder after the concepts that explain why this works have been taught.

In this activity students were given 6 graphs, 6 rules, 6 tables, 6 slopes, and 6 sentences. Then students have to pair up the correct cards. I like this activity because they get to learn the material while it is inexpensive and not too time consuming. I do not like this because some one can change some of the cards.
