Transcript Comparing Fractions — Let's Practice!
Razzi says get these items ready, because today we're going to practice comparing fractions. It's time to begin! Using fraction bars to help, is twothirds greater than, less than, or equal to onefourth? Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Draw the fraction bar for twothirds, and a same sized bar for onefourth. Twothirds is greater than onefourth. Did you also say greater than? Let's tackle the next problem! Compare threesixths and fiveeighths. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Draw the fraction bar for threesixths, and a same sized bar fiveeighths. Threesixths is less than fiveeighths. Did you also say less than? Let's tackle the next problem! Compare onehalf and twofourths. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Draw the fraction bar for onehalf, and a same sized bar twofourths. Onehalf is equal to twofourths. Did you also say equal to? Let's tackle the final problem! Compare sixtenths and sixeighths. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Draw the fraction bar for sixtenths, and a same sized bar sixeighths. Sixtenths is less than sixeighths. Did you also say less than? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

Is $\frac{1}{2}$ less than, greater than, or equal to $\frac{3}{4}$
HintsLook at the fraction bars. Which bar has more shaded?
Solution$\frac{1}{2}$ < $\frac{3}{4}$ because $\frac{3}{4}$ is larger than $\frac{1}{2}$

Are the given fractions more than $\frac{1}{2}$, less than $\frac{1}{2}$ or equal to $\frac{1}{2}$ ?
HintsDraw fraction bars for each of the fractions. Compare the fraction bars to determine which is greater than.
The line in the middle represents $\frac{1}{2}$.
Solution$\frac{1}{5}$ < $\frac{1}{2}$
$\frac{2}{4}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$
$\frac{5}{6}$ > $\frac{1}{2}$
$\frac{8}{8}$ > $\frac{1}{2}$ 
Is $\frac{3}{6}$ less than (<) , more than (>), or equal to (=) $\frac{1}{2}$ ?
HintsDraw fraction bars to represent $\frac{3}{6}$ and $\frac{1}{2}$ .
Look at the amount shaded for each fraction bar. Are the fractions <,> or =? Write the symbol in the blank.
SolutionThe fraction $\frac{3}{6}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$ because they both represent half.

Which fraction is more than $\frac{2}{6}$ ?
HintsDraw a fraction bar to reprent $\frac{3}{4}$ and $\frac{1}{4}$
Look at the fraction bars. Which one has more than $\frac{2}{6}$ shaded? Write that fraction in the blanks.
SolutionYou can see that $\frac{3}{4}$ has more shaded than $\frac{2}{6}$ . That means that $\frac{3}{4}$ is more than $\frac{2}{6}$ .

Which fraction is more than $\frac{3}{4}$ and less than $\frac{3}{4}$ ?
HintsDraw fraction bars to represent each fraction.
Look at the fraction bars. Use these to determine which fraction is more and less.
Solution$\frac{7}{8}$ is more than $\frac{3}{4}$ because a larger portion of the fraction bar is filled for $\frac{7}{8}$ than $\frac{3}{4}$
$\frac{2}{4}$ less than $\frac{3}{4}$ because a smaller portion of the fraction bar is filled for $\frac{2}{4}$ than $\frac{3}{4}$ 
Write the correct symbol in the blank.
HintsDraw fraction bars for each fraction.
Compare the fraction bars. Whichever fraction is more, is greater or >.
To find the < and > symbols, look next to the "m" key on your computer. You will need to press the "shift" key to type these symbols.
Solution$\frac{5}{6}$ > $\frac{1}{2}$ $\frac{2}{3}$ > $\frac{1}{3}$ $\frac{1}{4}$ < $\frac{2}{3}$ $\frac{3}{5}$ < $\frac{5}{6}$
