In this activity, we will be comparing fractions with 1/2 and using the < (less than) or > (greater than) symbols.

Example

Select the correct symbol > or < between the fractions.

We must work out how many tenths there are in a half because we can only compare tenths with tenths.

3/10 is smaller than 5/10
