Comparing Fractions

We have started to compare fractions. Think about the different strategies that we can use when comparing fractions.

Below are two games that will enable you to compare different fractions. Make sure you think very carefully when playing the game about which fraction is smaller and which fraction is larger by using strategies that will assist you. You will need to use the greater than and less than symbols to signal which fractions is larger or smaller. Remember the point of the symbol will always point towards the smaller fraction/number.
