G. Fraction Sense – How to tell if a fraction is close to 1, 1∕2, or 0 (Pages 192194)

Ms. E. Richards / Math

A fraction is close to 0 when the numerator is much less than the denominator A fraction is close to 1⁄2 when double the numerator is about equal to the denominator. A fraction is close to 1 when the numerator is about equal to the denominator, 1. Tell whether the fraction is close to 0, 1⁄2, or 1 a. 17/30 ____________________ b. 18/100 ____________________ c. 6/7 ____________________
H. Least Common Multiple (Pages 85 -86)

List the multiples of each number you are comparing until you find a multiple that is common to each list. 6-10 Comparing Fractions on a Number Line (Pages 106-107) To compare fractions with like denominators, compare the numerators. The fraction with the greatest numerator is the greater fraction. If the fractions do not have a common denominator, you will need to find the least common denominator (LCD) and rename the fractions as equivalent fractions with the same denominator, then you can compare the numerators to determine the larger fraction.

1. Rename each pair of fractions using the LCD as their denominator.
Determine the greater fraction. a. 1/3 and 4/9 ____________________ b. 2/5 and 3/7 ____________________
I. Order Fractions (Pages 108-109)

a. 5/12, 3/8, 5/6 ____________________ b. 3/7, 1⁄2, 4/14 ____________________
