Compare fractions practice
Comparing fractions is an important concept in the understanding of fractions. Our program helps to train this skill.
Practice to compare fractions to 1, 1/2. Recognize simple equivalent fractions.
Practice comparing fractions to 1, 1/2. Recognize simple equivalent fractions.
During practicing, students master the basic fraction comparing skill. They learn equivalent fractions, how to compare fractions to 1 and 1/2. In case of the wrong answer, Math Skill Builder will show the explanation.
Compare fractions by using benchmarks and other strategies.The ability to use benchmarks instead of the method that involve LCM is pretty helpful for success in math.
Benchmarking to 1 strategy.
Benchmarking to 1/2 strategy
Residual thinking strategy.
5/6 needs 1/6 to make 1 and 7/8 needs 1/8 to make 1.
1/8 is smaller, so 7/8 is "closer" to 1 and greater than 5/6.
Fractions with the same numerators.
Fractions with the same denominators.
Comparing fractions by making the numerator or denominator the same.If it is impossible to compare fractions by benchmarks and other strategies, students have to use more complicated methods. This training helps them to learn how to compare fractions by making numerators or denominators the same and then use already learned skills.
Comparing fractions by making the numerator the same.
Notice that 3x3=9. Multiply the numerator and denominator by 3 to make the numerators the same, and then compare the fractions.
Comparing fractions by making the denominator the same.
Notice that 6x5=30. Multiply the numerator and denominator by 5 to make the denominators the same, and then compare the fractions.
The report shows the learning progress in percentage (0% - not learned, 100% - learned perfectly).
There are three levels of the report.
