This week, we were doing a doc of comparing fractions. we have different strategies and at the end, we needed to complete a work sheet.
|If they have different fractions and all of the denominators is the same, look at the numerator and see which number is the biggest to smallest, you will find out.||2/5 4/5 7/5
Which is the biggest fraction?
erj da = same
|If the numerator is closer to the denominator, it is the largest.||4/5 4/7 4/1309
Which is the largest fraction?
4 : 7= +3
4 : 1309= +1305
knowledge of half
|You need to divide the denominator and the numerator.do each fraction the same thing and you can see the difference of each fraction.||7/15 6/25
Which is the biggest?
Bench mark of 1
|When the numerator is bigger than the denominator, it will show that other proper fraction and equal fractions is less than the improper fraction.||2/4 5/4 6/6
Which fraction is bigger?
2/4 = 2/4
6/6 = 1 whole
5/4 = 1 whole and one fourth
|#5 missing piece||When the denominator is different to other fraction, check the numerator, and if each numerator is 1 number less from the denominator, check the largest numerator, once you see it, that is the answer for the largest.||½ 6/7 12/13
12 is the biggest, so that means 12/13 is the biggest.
