Math Grade 4 Quiz Comparing Fractions – 4.NF.A.2

This standard requires students to understand how to compare two fractions that have different numerators and denominators. They can do this by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Students learn that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. They should record the results of their comparisons using >, =, or <, and justify their conclusions, possibly by using visual fraction models.
