Strategies for Comparing Fractions

We've been working on strategies for comparing fractions. Check them out below: 
How could you compare 2/6 and 5/8? (Leave us a comment below!) 


  1. 5 eights is greater than 2 sixths because 2 sixths is less than a half and 5 eights is over a half. from Hayden G

  2. I know 3/6 is equal to a half so 2/6 is less than a half. I know that 4/8 is equal to a half so 5/8 is greater than a half. There for 5/8 is greater than 2/6.


We LOVE for students to leave comments. Please remember to include your name with your comment. First names only please! See the example below:
