Looking for a way to get your middle school math students to compare and order positive rational numbers? In this activity, students will use their knowledge of whole numbers, fractions (proper and improper), mixed numbers, decimals, and percents to answer the questions on 20 task cards ( Please note: knowledge of exponents is also required for this activity). More specifically, students will…
