4th grade students will learn how to compare fractions with different numerators and denominators and decide if the fractions are greater than, less than, or equal and use the correct signs >, <, =

Introduction

Hello 4th Grade Students!
 
 

Today, during lunch several students went out to eat pizza. Later, during class, they were arguing as to whom had eaten the most pizza. Sam said he ate the most pizza because he ate 1/2 of a pizza. But Mark disagreed  and said he ate more because he ate 4 out of 16 slices of his pizza. Can you help settle this argument?

 

                            

Who do you think ate the most pizza?

In this WebQuest, we are going to look at fractions and compare numbers that are in fraction form and be able to solve and see which fraction is the greatest and least or if they are equal.
