Description:

In this activity, students pick two fractions between zero and one and select portions of a square or circle so that the highlighted portion matches each of the two fractions. Then they must highlight portions of another square or circle to make a fraction that lies in between the two previous fractions. As they highlight portions of the third shape, a pointer indicates whether they are in between the two other fractions. This activity allows students to practice comparing fractions. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
