A seemingly simple question that reveals a lot about a student's understanding of fractions. In finding an answer, learners compare fractions with different denominators that are both greater and less than one. No number line is included, so encourage your class to make their own, or draw pictures to help them determine a solution. Use this resource to strengthen your third graders' ability to compare fractions, or teach fourth graders about common denominators.
