Other Comments:
This applet is a great way to help students develop strategies for comparing fractions. Enter in 2 fractions with common denominators, and the applet makes it obvious which one is larger. Then enter in two fractions with common numerators and the students will begin to develop a strategy. Also use the applet to compare fractions like 4/7 and 5/11, where 1 is less than 1/2 and the other is greater than 1/2.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
Not much, really. This is a prelude to finding common denominators.
