Math Grade 3 Quiz Explaining Equivalence and Comparing Fractions – 3.NF.A.3

This standard, CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3, requires students to understand the concept of equivalent fractions and to be able to compare fractions by reasoning about their size. Students should be able to recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3) and explain why the fractions are equivalent. They should also be able to compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size, understanding that fraction comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole.
