Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Begin by explaining to students that just like with whole numbers, fractions can compared to one another.
  2. While reading the content pages, review important vocabulary terms and symbols. Give students additional examples to compare fractions. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Have students practice comparing fractions. Instructors should provide problems for students. Students can write their answers on whiteboards, come to the board to solve, or write them on their own paper.
  4. Distribute Activity recording page to students. Hand out a deck of cards to each pair of students. Model the activity so students understand how to play a round in the game. Students can write down the fractions the draw and compare on a sheet of paper to be turned in at the end of the activity.
  5. Distribute Practice page. Reinforce vocabulary and have students use both approaches to comparing fractions. Have students check their answers with a partner.
  6. Distribute the Homework page.
  7. Ask students to think of times in their lives where it would be important to compare fractions.
  8. Allow for responses and discussion.
