LC: To compare and order fractions
Today we are going to take our understanding of fractions a little further - we are going to look at mixed numbers.
Mixed numbers are when we have a whole number with a fraction.
Like this: 1½
You know all about whole numbers so we just look for a common multiple for the denominators. The denominators are 4 and 5 so the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) is 20.
Remember - Whatever we do to the top, we do to the bottom!
This ensures the fractions stay equivalent.
