The learner will compare fractions with unlike denominators using fraction
pieces and drawings. The learner will compare fractions with unlike
denominators using the least common multiple.

The learner will identify, read and write fractions.
The learner will find the least common multiple of two numbers.
The learner will identify the symbols <, >, and =.
The learner will indicate what equivalent means.
The teacher will model examples of how to compare two fractions using
fraction pieces and drawings.
The students will demonstrate an understanding of how
to compare two fractions by doing examples using an individual set of
fraction pieces and then drawing the example on a piece of paper. The
students will then indicate if the given sets of fractions are greater than,
less than or equal to one another.
The teacher will model how to rename fractions using
the least common multiple to get a common denominator. By using this method,
students will realize that some fractions have denominators that are ideally
too large to use fraction pieces or drawings for. Using this method,
students will also understand the concept of equivalent fractions.
The students will compare given fractions using the
least common multiple method of comparing fractions. The students will then
indicate if the given sets of fractions are greater than, less than or equal
to one another.
Teacher will check for comprehension and performance of the taught concepts
by rotating around the room and checking students performance on the given
worksheet and then giving a few review problems.
