Our Order Fractions with Like Numerators lesson plan teaches students to put fractions in order from smallest to largest if the numerators are the same. The definitions of numerator and denominator are reviewed at the beginning of the lesson and several illustrated examples are given to enhance students’ understanding of the concept. Students are asked to solve word problems in which they are required to order fractions. Students are also asked to individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to place three fractions in ascending or descending order with like numerators.
