Inequalities with Addition/Subtraction of Fractions

With our Inequalities with Addition/Subtraction of Fractions lesson plan, students learn how to compare fractions using inequalities (<, >, and =). Students solve practice problems as a part of this lesson.

Our Inequalities with Addition/Subtraction of Fractions lesson plan teaches students how to use inequalities (<, >, and =) to compare fractions. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an activity in which they roll a dice to fill in the numerators in fractions and then use the greater than, lesser than, and equals to symbols to compare them. Students are also asked to solve practice problems by completing equations with inequalities, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare fractions using <, >, and = that must be simplified using addition or subtraction.
