# Comparing Fractions

## Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The "My Path to Math" series aims to make math concepts simple and more easily understood. Comparing fractions accomplishes its mission using items that kids are familiar with such as pizza, fruits, and vegetables. The concrete examples make it easy to understand what otherwise could be somewhat abstract. Fractions are defined as parts of a whole and number lines are used to compare and order different fractions. The concept of a numerator and denominator are introduced. If fractions have the same denominator then the one with the larger numerator is the bigger fraction. The tricky part is realizing that there are equivalent fractions and once again the number line is useful to demonstrate the concept. Additional sections address, comparing fractions, whole numbers as fractions, and mixed numbers. The end pages include a glossary, fraction wall, and index. For parents who may not be familiar with number lines, this book can be used to help students learning math and will easily be understood by an assisting adult. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
