Lesson 27 Concept Development

Problem 1: Model, using a tape diagram, the comparison of two mixed numbers having related denominators.

Problem 2: Compare two fractions with unrelated denominators.

Lesson 27 Problem Set

1. Draw a tape diagram to model each comparison. Use >, <, or = to compare.
2. Use an area model to make like units. Then use >, <, or = to compare.
3. Compare each pair of fractions using >, <, or = using any strategy.
