## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- If two parts are the same size, but a different fraction of the whole, the whole with the most parts will be greater.
- If two parts are different, but are the same fraction of the whole, the whole with the larger part will be greater.
- If the size of the part and the fraction of the whole are different, we need to calculate to determine which is greater.

### Common misconception

Children may confuse the different methods used to compare fractions of amounts and their wholes.

Guide through questioning. What is the same/different? Can you represent this visually? What is the size/value of the parts? What fraction of the whole is each part?

### Keywords

Times as much - Times as much is a phrase that is used to compare and describe objects.
