5th grade Comparing Fractions MTS

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Our Thoughts about Comparing Fractions<br />Trinity Griffith ~ “When I first heard about comparing fractions, I thought it was going to be boring but actually it’s really fun to do. I hope you really like fractions too!”<br />Sierra Monts ~ “Comparing fractions were hard to me then I got better the more I practiced. I love fractions and MATH!”<br />
  3. 3. Our Thoughts about Comparing Fractions<br />Mylah Childress ~ “Comparing fractions hmmm… When I first tried to compare fractions I thought oh no I will never be able to do this but eventually I did. I thought there was to many steps and it got confusing. I hated it! Over the months I learned and memorized the steps and now I can compare fractions like there’s no problem! I hope this PowerPoint helped a lot of you.<br />

  5. 5. Do you have trouble with fractions?<br />Well if you do pay close attention to this slide show!<br />
  6. 6. How to setup comparing fractions<br />Step #1 line up your fractions from top to bottom<br />Step #2 take the denominators and find the Least Common Multiple(LCM)<br />Step #3 count the multiples it took you to find the LCM<br />this will be your MAGIC ONE<br />
  7. 7. Let’s try it!<br />1/10 – 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100,110,120<br />2/20 – 20, 40,60, 80, 100, 120<br />5/40 – 40, 80, 120<br />6/30 – 30,60,90,120<br />120 is the LCM<br />
  8. 8. Let’s try it Part 2<br />1/10 – 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100,110,120 – M1=12<br />2/20 – 20, 40,60, 80, 100, 120 - M1=6<br />5/40 – 40, 80, 120 – M1=3<br />6/30 – 30,60,90,120 – M1=4<br />M1=MAGIC ONE<br />
  9. 9. Using your MAGIC ONE<br />1/10x12/12=12/120<br />2/20x6/6=12/120<br />5/40x3/3=15/120<br />6/30x4/4=24/120<br />
  10. 10. Comparing your Fractions<br />Greatest to Least<br />24/20---15/20---12/20---12/120<br />6/30------5/40----2/20-----1/10<br />Now that I've done it, you try on your own!<br />DON’T STOP BELIEVING<br />
