This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to compare two proper fractions by converting them into equivalent fractions with a common denominator.


Students will be able to

  • use a model to compare fractions that have different denominators,
  • identify and list multiples to find the common denominator of a pair of fractions,
  • convert two fractions so that they have a common denominator and then compare them,
  • solve word problems involving comparing two proper fractions.


Students should already be familiar with

  • using a model to represent a fraction,
  • identifying common denominators,
  • finding equivalent fractions,
  • comparing two fractions with the same denominator.
