Order and compare fractions
• The numerator is the NUMBER
of pieces you have
• The denominator is the size of
the pieces
• If something is cut into more
pieces those pieces are going to
be smaller.

Strategies for comparing and ordering fractions…
• One strategy for comparing fractions is to
think about their relationship to one and zero.
For example, 5/6 is almost all of the pieces,
so it would be close to 1; 1/6 is close to none
of the pieces, so it would be closer to zero.
• Another strategy is to convert the fractions to
a decimal and then compare the decimals.
(numerator divided by denominator =
decimal)
• A third strategy is to find a common
denominator among your fractions and
compare the numerators.

4/9 _____ 6/9
The correct answer is 4/9 < 6/9 because in these two
fractions, the denominators are the same.
Therefore, the pieces are the same size.
Four of these pieces are less than six.

8/9 is > 7/8
8/9 _____ 7/8
In each of these two fractions, there is all but one piece.
However, because 9ths are smaller than 8ths, the
remaining 1/9 is smaller than the remaining 1/8.

1/3 is < 5/12
1/3 _____ 5/12
If you change 1/3 into an equivalent fraction, it would be
equal to 4/12. 4 out of 12 is less than 5 out of 12.

Convert between fractions and percents
•Fractions and percents are both ways of representing a part out
of a whole.

•An equivalent percent for a decimal or a fraction can be found
by finding an equivalent fraction out of 100 since “percent”
means “per 100”. In this case, the numerator would be the
percent.

•A fraction or decimal can be formed from a percent by
creating a fraction where the numerator is the percentage and
the denominator is 100, or by dividing the percent by 100.

Draw a circle graph for a set of data.
How to Make a Pie Chart
Pie charts are an easy way to visualize percentages. They are useful for analyzing polls, statistics, and managing
time or money.

Steps
worksheet!
1.Organize your data. First gather your data.
2.Add it all together. Add all of the numbers to get a denominator.
3.Get the numerator. Get the numerators by taking each part of the data.
4.Convert your fractions to a decimal. By taking the numerator divided by the denominator.
5.Convert the decimal to a percent. Move the decimal two places to the right.
6.Get the angle. Multiply the percent by 360 to get an angle.
7.Use a compass to draw a circle. If you don't have a compass, try tracing something round such as a lid.
8.Draw the radius. Start in the exact center of the circle and draw a radius to the outside of it. ( Hint: Use the dot
made by the compass to find the center.
9.Place your protractor. Place your protractor on the circle so that the 90 degrees are directly above the center
of the circle.
10.Draw each section. Draw the sections by using the angles you got in step six. Each time you add a section
the radius changes to the line you just drew.

circle graph.                • Add the name of the sections and the percent they
represent to the chart.
• Color each section of the pie chart a different color to
easily visualize the results.
• If you do not have a very good compass, it is easier to
draw the circle by holding the compass still and turning
the paper.
Measure Pieces of a Circle Graph
Click the links next to each step for more information.

Steps

1. Measure the angle of the sector you are trying to measure using a protractor.

2. Turn that measurement into a fraction out of 360°

3. Change that fraction into a decimal by dividing the measurement by 360°

4. Then multiply the decimal by 100 to change it into a percent.

A full circle will consist of 360 degrees.
Therefore 1% on a pie chart will be
represented by 3.6 degrees.

Just multiply the angle measure by 3.6.

Convert between fractions and mixed numbers.

• A FRACTION is a part out of a whole. The numerator tells the number
of parts you have, the denominator tells how many parts it takes to make
one whole.

• A fraction that has more parts than it takes to make one whole is called
an improper or top-heavy fraction. In these fractions, the numerator is
greater than the denominator.

• A MIXED NUMBER is a whole number with a fraction.

This drawing
represents the
fraction 5/4
and the mixed
number 1 ¼.

It’s good to understand both forms of this quantity because at
times it is easier to work with mixed numbers (adding and
subtracting so that you don’t have to simplify as much), and at
others it’s easier to work with improper fractions (multiplying and
dividing so that you don’t forget to multiply all of the numbers
together.)

Finding Equivalent Fractions

Two fractions are EQUIVALENT if they are equal.
This means that the relationship between the
numerator and the denominator of one fraction is
the same as the relationship between the numerator
and denominator of the other fraction.
For example

3/6 is equivalent to 10/20 because the relationship between the numerator
and the denominator is the same in each case: 3 is ½ of 6, and 10 is ½ of
20.
Another way you can look at it is if two fractions
are equivalent, they will have a scale factor between
them. The SCALE FACTOR is the number that you
multiply or divide the numerator and denominator in
one fraction by to get the numerator and
denominator of the second fraction.
By multiplying 3/5 by 3/3 (remember, that is the same as
multiplying by 1 whole), I will arrive at the answer 9/15.

Remember that when you are doing this you must BE FAIR

the denominator.

Don’t forget that when you multiply fractions, you multiply
the numerators together and you multiply the denominators

together.

A third way to determine if two fractions are
equivalent is to CROSS MULTIPLY.

Multiply the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the other.

Repeat this with the other numerator and denominator.

If the products are equal, then the fractions are equivalent.
