Once students understand equivalence, they can begin to order fractions according to their size.
What to look for
Students should recognize that, as with whole numbers, when ordering fractions the larger of two fractions is located farther to the right on the number line.
Write a comparison statement to order the fractions from least to greatest.
(25/12), (13/12), (9/10), (13/5)
Answer: (9/10) < (13/12)="">< (25/12)=""><>(13/5)
