In this lesson, we will learn:

- How to compare decimals with decimals as well as fractions with fractions
- How to compare decimals with fractions using a number line or by converting into the same format
- How to order 3 or more decimals and fractions

- When you
**compare two numbers**, you always start with the biggest place value (most left) and then keep moving to the right (smaller place values) until you see a**difference**(the digits are different numbers). - You compare numbers the same way for both
**whole numbers**and**decimals**. - For the numbers in each place value, 0 is the
__smallest__and 9 is the__biggest__. - Once you have found a
**difference**for a place value, it does__not__matter what numbers are in the places further on the right (smaller places) - The
**biggest place value**(most left) that is__different__for the two numbers is what matters. - Whenever you
**compare two numbers**you need them to be in the__same format__; you will want to compare**decimal vs. decimal**(with same amount of place values) or**fraction vs. fraction**. - To compare
**fractions with fractions** __Convert__decimal numbers into fractions (have all fractions)__Convert__fractions into**equivalent fractions**with the same**denominator**- Then,
__compare__the numerators - Ex. for $\frac{3}{10}$ vs. $\frac{20}{100}$ , you can either consider: $\frac{30}{100}$ vs. $\frac{20}{100}$ or $\frac{3}{10}$ vs. $\frac{2}{10}$
- To compare
**decimals with decimals** __Convert__fractions into decimals (have all decimal numbers)- If you’re having trouble comparing decimals of different lengths, make all the numbers have the
__same number of decimal places__by add trailing zeroes (add zeroes to the right) - Then,
__compare__the decimals - Seeing where
**common fractions**and**decimals**are placed on a__number line__can help you to understand ordering decimals in fractions: - First, we can divide a number line into halves:

- Then, we can split each half into halves, making them quarters:

- We can also split a number line into tenths (ten pieces):

- We can further split number lines into hundredths by splitting each tenth into ten more pieces:

- To
**order**a list of decimals and/or fractions, you must first__convert__them into the__same format__so that you can compare them. Then, follow the__instructions__of ordering either from: **Least to greatest**(increasing; smallest to biggest) or**Greatest to least**(decreasing; biggest to smallest)- Review these
**symbols**for comparing and ordering numbers: - < less than
- > greater than
- = equal to

- IntroductionIntroduction to comparing and ordering decimals and fractions:a)How do you compare two numbers?b)How do you compare decimals and fractions?
- Why is 8.97 more than 9.795?
- Why do you need to be in the "same format"?

c)How to you place common fractions and decimals onto a number line?d)How do you order a list of 3 or more decimals and fractions? - 1.
**Comparing decimals up to thousandths**

Compare decimal vs. decimal and circle the.__bigger value__a)0.164 and 0.162b)0.36 and 0.6c).605 and 0.6 - 2.
**Comparing the values of decimals with fractions**

Compare decimal vs. fraction and circle thevalue. (Or, circle both if they are equal and have the same value)__smaller__a)0.5 and $\frac{1}{2}$b)0.8 and $\frac{3}{4}$c)$\frac{9}{25}$ and 0.34d)0.3 and $\frac{2}{5}$e)$\frac{7}{10}$ and 0.07 - 3.
**Comparing and ordering decimals and decimal fractions**

Change each value into all the same form and then write in order from least to greatest:a)Change all the following into decimals:- 2.19, 2$\frac{48}{100}$, 2$\frac{39}{100}$
- $\frac{8}{10}$, $\frac{25}{100}$, 0.31
- 1$\frac{666}{1000}$, 1$\frac{3}{5}$, 1.66

b)Change all the following into decimal fractions- 0.493, 0.48, 0.479
- 3.7, 1.65, 2.82
- 0.46, 0.7, 0.3

- 4.
**Comparing and ordering decimals and non-decimal fractions**

Write the decimals/fractions in order from__greatest to least*__a)0.799, $\frac{8}{10}$, $\frac{3}{4}$b)$\frac{2}{5}$, $\frac{60}{100}$, $\frac{1}{2}$, 0.582c)$\frac{1}{25}$, $\frac{4}{1000}$, $\frac{11}{25}$, 0.444, $\frac{4}{10}$ - 5.
**Word problem for comparing decimals and fractions**

Ms. Johnson's science class is having a crystal growing competition. They are measuring the results by how heavy each student's crystal weighs. Who came in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place?

**Student Name****Crystal Weight**James 70$\frac{11}{25}$g Lucas 73$\frac{67}{100}$g Emma 75.492 g Charlotte 70$\frac{1}{2}$g Ava $\frac{7891}{100}$g - 6.
**Word problem for comparing decimals and expanded form**

Use the following words below each question; each set of words can make up a written form for several different decimal numbers.a)Rearrange the words below to create the largest number possible. Also, write the standard form of this number.*"hundredths, tenths, thousandths, four, eight, seven, nine, and"*b)Rearrange the words below to create the largest number possible. Also, write the standard form of this number.*"thousand, thousandths, and, thirty-two, fifty-six"*
