3.NF.3, 4.NF.2 Fraction Task Cards Compare fractions using half as a benchmark. Students will practice comparing fractions to half. Then, they will compare using the less than, greater than, and equal to symbols. If one fraction is more than half and the other is less than half, students can easily choose the correct symbol. This reinforces a clear understanding of fractions.

These task cards can used as an early finisher, as a scoot game, or as a center.


Included:
30 task cards
Instruction and Hint task cards
Two recording sheets
Vocabulary Posters (can be shown on interactive white board or printed)
Objective Poster
Organizational Tips
A recording sheet to track student progress
An answer key

The identify Fraction Cards are a Freebie. They are a great way to preview what you will get with each set.

Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
