ORDERING FRACTIONS

In this module, you can study how to put fractions in order from least to greatest.

The Khan Academy video above shows how to compare fractions by finding the common denominator first.

 

The above video shows you three ways to put fractions in order from smallest to biggest.

 

Did you know?

3/8 is bigger than 5/16  (even though 5 is bigger than 3)

3/16 is bigger than 1/8  (even though 16 is bigger than 8)

See the Comparing Fractions page for lessons and information about how to tell which is the larger of any two fractions.
