### Comparing Fractions and Decimals

• NS 1.1 Compare and order positive and negative fractions, decimals, and mixed numbers and place them on a number line

• How do we compare fractions?

• >, <, or = denominator, then compare the numerators.

• 1.99 to right.2.032.42.00

• 2.4, 2.03, 2, 1.99

• Order from greatest to least: 1.99, 2.03, 2.4, 2

• How do we compare fractions and decimals?

Direct Station division.

• We will work together on comparing decimal and fraction problems

Collaborative Station: division.Dominoes

• To connect two dominoes, the sides that touch must have the same value.

• One side will be a fractionand the other side willbe a decimal. You andyour partner must calculatewhich dominoes may be placednext to each other.

• Example: ½ = 0.5 so if one domino has ½ and other domino has 0.5, you may place the dominoes together as long as the ½ and 0.5 ends are touching.

Independent Station division.

• We are continuing ST Math’s unit on equations
