Comparing Unit Fractions: Making Sense of Denominators of 10 or Less

#### Slide 1 -Tekstslide

Deze slide heeft geen instructies

Learning Objective
At the end of the lesson, you will be able to compare different unit fractions of the same whole, limited to denominators of 10 or less.

#### Slide 2 -Tekstslide

State the learning objective clearly and make sure that the students understand what they will be able to do by the end of the lesson.

What is a Unit Fraction?
A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is 1 and the denominator represents the total number of equal parts that make up a whole.

#### Slide 4 -Tekstslide

Explain to the students what a unit fraction is so they can understand the lesson better.
What is a Denominator?
The denominator is the number at the bottom of a fraction that shows how many equal parts the whole is divided into.

#### Slide 5 -Tekstslide

Ensure that the students understand what the denominator is and its importance in fractions.
Example of Comparing Unit Fractions
1/5 is less than 1/2 because the whole is divided into fewer parts in 1/5 than in 1/2.

#### Slide 6 -Tekstslide

Use concrete examples to help the students understand how to compare unit fractions.
Comparing Unit Fractions with the Same Denominator
When the denominators are the same, the unit fraction with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.

#### Slide 7 -Tekstslide

Explain to the students that when the denominators are the same, the larger numerator means the fraction is larger.
Comparing Unit Fractions with Different Denominators
If the denominators are different, we need to find a common denominator before we can compare them.

#### Slide 8 -Tekstslide

Teach the students how to find a common denominator when comparing fractions with different denominators.
Finding a Common Denominator
To find a common denominator, we need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators.

#### Slide 9 -Tekstslide

Explain to the students how to find the LCM of two denominators.
Comparing Unit Fractions with Different Denominators Using a Common Denominator
Once we have found a common denominator, we can compare the fractions by comparing their numerators.

#### Slide 10 -Tekstslide

Show the students how to use the common denominator to compare fractions with different denominators.
