Only compare fractions of the same whole. Half of a small circle isn't the same as half of a big circle.
Practice comparing fractions by looking at pictures.
Compare two fractions with greater and less than symbols.
Finding common denominators of multiple fractions to order them
Order up to six fractions from least to greatest.
