Comparing Fractions with Different Denominators
Using a fraction wall and equivalent fractions students learn about comparing fractions with different denominators.At the start of the lesson students recap writing fractions from a using a 4 by 3 coloured grid. In the main students use inequality symbols to compare the size of fractions with different denominators. The plenary challenges students to order a range of fractions using a common denominator.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to use a fraction wall to compare the size of two fractions.
- Most students should be able to use equivalent fractions to compare the sizes of fractions.
- Some students should be able to compare the size of fractions, decimals and percentages.
