Comparing Fractions

Young mathematicians compare two fractions with like denominators and then move to the next level to compare fractions with unlike denominators. They will first try to use mental math to make educated guesses. There are a few guidelines to use when comparing fractions that have like denominators, and also when comparing fractions with like numerators. The class may also use fraction cards, number lines, fraction circles, and rods to help visual learners.
