Comparing fractions (part 2)
How do you compare fractions with different denominators? Comparing fractions is a nightmare for pupils and teachers.
This is a very difficult subject to teach and probably an even worse topic to
learn. Put this on an examination paper and you will separate the wheat from
the chaff, and mostly it will be chaff. How can we be more successful and not
have to teach it year after year to the same pupils.
