Compare fractions to a benchmark of one half using number lines
In this lesson, you will learn how to compare fractions with different numerators and denominators to the benchmark fraction of one half by using number lines.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
