Visual and Written Methods for Comparing Fractions

Students learn how to compare the size of two fractions with different denominators using a fraction wall.

Later, as learning progresses they use equivalent fractions to check their solutions.

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.
