- 4.NF.A.1Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n Ã a)/(n Ã b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
- 4.NF.A.2Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

4.NF.A.2

Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2.

Which Fraction is Greater?

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Fraction Operations

Big Idea:Which fraction is greater: 9/8 or 4/3? Students play the comparing game in order to develop strategies for comparing fractions.

Looking for Patterns + Show What You Know

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Fraction Operations

Big Idea:How would you solve 3 Â¼ - 1 5/6? What do students understand? What gaps do they have in their understanding? Students continue looking for patterns when they are adding and subtracting fractions and then they take a quiz.

Unit Test

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Fraction Operations

Big Idea:What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 4 test.
