Looking for some great activities to strengthen your students’ understanding of fraction relationships and comparison strategies?
This pack allows students to practice using multiple methods for comparing fractions through cooperative learning experiences and interactive notebook activities, including using the three strategies emphasized by The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, NCTM. The strategies include:
• Compare to 1/2
• Use a Visual Model
• Missing Piece
• Same Numerator or Denominator
• Change One Numerator or Denominator to Match the Other
• Use a Common Denominator
• Simplify the Fraction
This pack also includes my Strategies to Compare Fractions Learning Posters and Bulletin Board Pack (a $2 value) so that students have a visual to refer to as they work. Learn more and see the preview here!
Understanding fractions is typically one of the most challenging math skills for students and adults alike. The purpose of this series is to help students build a strong foundation for comparing fractions through exploring the use of a variety of methods to make the comparisons. These explorations will provide students with the opportunity to think more deeply about the meaning of fractions and the relationship between them.
I hope this pack helps your students make meaning from comparing fractions situations!- The Routty Math Teacher
