Comparing and Identifying Fractions on a Number Line

Directions: Using the whole numbers 1-9 once each, create and place 4 fractions on the number line in the correct order. (fractions B & C are equal)

Hint

Hint

The sum of the equivalent fractions is greater than a half and greater than a quarter separate. How do you know if two fractions are equivalent? How do you know if fractions are less than or greater than another fraction?

Answer

Answer

There are many possible answers. Here are a couple: A = 1/7, B = 3/8, C = 9/24, D = 5/6; Another possibility is A = 1/5, B = 3/9, C = 8/24, D = 6/7; yet another possibility is A = 5/8, B = 3/4, C = 9/12 and D = 6/7. (or D could be 7/6)

  1. Here is another answer a student found A = 5/8, B = 3/4, C = 9/12 and D = 6/7. (or D could be 7/6)

  2. B and C are not equivalent in your first possible answer. (3/6 > 9/27)

  3. This is so much fun! My students and I are wondering about A= 3/7, B=4/8, C=6/12 and D=9/5 and A= 2/7, B=3/6, C=9/18 and D=5/4 Thanks for sharing your work with us!
