Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 180 min(s)

This lesson guides students in learning how numerators and denominators are important to consider when comparing fractions. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Compare fractions using visual models, and reason about the size of the numerator and the denominator.
