Lesson 15 Concept Development

Problem 1: Reason to compare fractions between 1 and 2.

Problem 2: Reason about the size of fractions as compared to 1 1/2.

Problem 3: Reason using benchmarks to compare two fractions.

1. Draw an area model for each pair of fractions, and use it to compare the two fractions by writing a >, <, or = symbol on the line. The first two have been partly done for you. Each rectangle represents one whole.

2. Rename the fractions, as needed, using multiplication in order to compare the two fractions in each pair by writing a >, <, or =.

3. Use any method to compare the fractions. Record your answer using >, <, or =.
