6 White Ordering and Comparing Fractions

Comparing fractions…

This week in 6 White we have begun to review our fraction knowledge. We have looked at common multiples and factors, as well as simplifying and comparing and ordering. Hafsa will demonstrate one of the ways we can change a fraction to make it easier to compare and order. 

Key Questions:

What is the rule when converting a fraction?
What does equivalent mean?
What is a denominator?
What is a numerator?

  1. The rule when we’re converting a fraction is that whatever you do to the numerator you must do to the denominator.
    Equivalent means the same amount for example:1/2 2/4 and on.
    A denominator is how many pieces there are in a whole.
    A numerator is how many pieces are shaded or taken out from the denominator.

  2. When converting fractions, you must do the same thing you do to the numerator, to the denominator.Equivalent means the same in value.The denominator is the total amount of pieces your whole/s have been divided into. They should all be equal.The numerator is how many pieces have been taken out/shaded/consumed out of the total amount of pieces the whole has been split into(the denominator).

    Well done Hafsa.Brilliantly explained😃😃😃

  3. Equivalent means when things are the same for example 2/4 is equivalent to 1/2 because double 1/2 is 2/4.
    A denominator is the number under the line and is the divisor of a fraction.
    A numerator shows how much of a number is take for example: the is a pizza with ten slices and 3 slices are eaten. The fraction is 3/10 because there are 10 slices and 3 slices have been eaten.
