Comparing Fractions - Which is Greater

Published on 12/22/2008

Activity Overview

There will be times when students need to decide if one fraction is greater than another fraction. Therefore, students will need to have strategies to assist in deciding which fraction is larger. In this activity, students, in pairs, will decide the greater of two fractions, decide on a reason that one is greater than the other, and check their answers using the TI-73 and the Number Line application.
