A great way to teach students to compare fractions is to use a number line. During this activity, partners will get the chance to "coach" each other while plotting fractions on a number line to compare each inequality. This allows students to work together and verbalize their understanding of fractions. They'll also need to look at each fraction's denominator to determine what their number line should look like.
18 problems with blank single number lines
18 of the same problems as above but with double number lines so each fraction can be plotted on a separate number line
Answer key and teacher suggestions
None of the fractions are greater than one whole. Problems range from halves to twelfths with like and unlike denominators.
