Instructional Objectives/Outcomes:
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.

Materials:
Individual Dry Erase Boards with a marker and eraser
Fraction pieces-Teacher set
Fraction pieces-Individual student set
Paper
Pencil
Worksheet

Instructional Procedures:

 Review
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.

 Lesson
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.

Ending Review/Evaluation
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.

Follow-up Activity:
Worksheet with examples of the objective taught and performance task items relating to the lesson.
