### Description

Comparing Fractions can be tricky, take it from someone who just taught it! My kiddos needed something visual to keep them on track so I combined two strategies into one and it worked well for them for comparing the fractions. Throw in a couple colored pencils, and you are good to go on successfully comparing fractions on a number line!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Represent a fraction π’/π£ on a number line diagram by marking off π’ lengths 1/π£ from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size π’/π£ and that its endpoint locates the number π’/π£ on the number line.
Represent a fraction 1/π£ on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into π£ equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/π£ and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/π£ on the number line.
