Today our teacher showed us how to Compare fractions. There are 4 strategies Equal Denominator, Benchmark of 1, Equal numerator, Missing piece and Benchmark of half. My favourite strategy out of all 5 is the missing piece because I like how it is a little simple. We did a worksheet showing how well do we know the strategies. Here is the picture!
Here is some strategies!
|Equal Denominator||An Equal Denominator is when the bottom number is all the same so I look at the numerator and see which is the biggest||3/5 2/5 4/5
|Benchmark of 1||There are different denominators and we look to see which fraction is more less, or equal to 1||4/6 3/2 6/6
Smallest Largest x
|Equal Numerator||The numerators are all the same but we look and see which denominator is largest||3/4 3/7 3/6
|Missing Piece||Fractions are all missing one piece. The larger the denominator is then the larger the fraction is because you lose less.||8/9 1/2 19/20
|Benchmark of half||There are different denominators and we look to see which fraction is more less, or equal to half|| 3/8 4/5 2/4
Less More Equal
