Unit: 4.5

Comparing Fractions

In this unit students

•  compare equal and unequal fractions;
•  understand fraction equivalence;
•  work with decimal fractions for tenths and hundredths.

Students deepen their understanding of fraction equivalence and reason about the size of fractions, which leads to comparing and ordering using visual fraction models. Students are also introduced to decimal fractions in this unit. They do similar work with equivalence (express a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100) and compare decimals by reasoning about their size. This is the first unit out of three that focuses on fractions, which is part of the major work of 4th grade.
