Comparing Fractions with Common Denominators or Common Numerators (Grade 3)
This lesson set is designed to provide students opportunities to compare and reason about the comparison of fractions with either common denominators or common numerators. Students will:
- solve real-world situations that require a comparison of fractional amounts;
- reason about the meaning of the numerator and denominator to compare fractions;
- work with fractional amounts between 0 and 1 and fractional amounts greater than or equal to 1; and
- create and use regional and number line models to represent and compare fractions.
