Numbertown ---- Bigger or smaller? By how much? |

So far itâ€™s been useful to
use fraction ID cards to help answer comparison of
fraction questions. But that's like having training
wheels on your bicycle. We need a better way to find
out EXACTLY how much more one fraction is than
another.
By now, you should notice that every costume in a particular fraction's costume closet is the same size. But how do you compare with other fraction's costume closets? For example, how much bigger is 1/2 than 1/3? The 1/2 closet has 1/2, 2/4, 3/6,
4/8, 5/10, 6/12, etc. The 1/3 closet contains 1/3, 2/6,
3/9, 4/12, etc.What is the denominator match in this listing? It's 6! |
