This product contains a 21 slide PowerPoint to teach students about comparing fractions. It walks students through 3 different strategies including drawing models, using benchmark fractions and number lines, and cross multiplying. A note taker is provided for students to use. It can be cut and put into math spirals if needed. Students will be given the opportunity to take notes, see examples, and practice each strategy.
This product is aligned to the following state standard:
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.
I hope you and your students find this resource beneficial and engaging! Please remember to leave feedback!
