Subject: Re: ordering fractions

You ask about ordering fractions in the real world.  

Mechanics need to be able to sort sockets, drills, wrenches etc. by
sizes; particularily those that are given as fractions such as 1/2,
5/8 etc.  

By the way, that is a good activity for students who are learning
about add unlike fraqctions.  Bring a bunch of sockets to class and
let kids sort them by size.
