Math Homework Help (Also found on Google Classroom)

For homework, please order the five fractions you were given from least to greatest on a piece of lined notebook paper. (Remember to write your full name on the page!)

Remember, here are the steps for ordering fractions on a number line:
1:  Think about which fractions are greater or less than your benchmark fractions (such as 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1).
2:  If you are unsure about which fraction is greater, then you can find equivalent fractions to compare the numbers:  Remember to find the LCM (least common multiple) of the denominators that you want to make the same.  Then figure out what you need to multiply each fraction by in order to make the denominators the same.  "What you do to the bottom, you must do to the top!"
3:  Create a number line showing 0 on one end and 1 on the other.  Then label where your fractions should go from least to greatest.  If two fractions are equivalent, then you may write one on top of the other. 

Here's an example:
*You do NOT have to write out your explanations like I did in my example, but you DO have to show when you compare fractions and how to plot them on the number line.
