Comparison of Fractions Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators. The Comparison of Fractions learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 4.NF.A.2 as written in the common core national math standards.

Fractions must refer to the same whole to be compared. Unit fractions with larger denominators have a smaller value. When referring to the same whole, the larger the denominator the smaller the unit portions will be. When comparing fractions with different denominators, students can rewrite fractions as fractions with the same denominator by multiplying both fractions by the other’s denominator. When fractions have the same unit fraction, they can be compared using the denominators. Use reasoning to justify comparisons using benchmark numbers on a number line. Compare fractions using <, = , >. Order fractions with different denominators.
