Unit 5, Lesson 11# Compare unit fractions with different-sized models representing the whole

EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students compare different-sized containers, and fractional parts of different-sized containers, to conclude that comparisons of fractions are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Then they compare fractions of same-sized wholes using visual models and the terms "greater than" and "less than."
