4^{th} Grade (MAT) Targeted Standard (NF) Number and Operations - Fractions Cluster: Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

MAT-04.NF.02 By creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2 , compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
