There are 4 levels for this activity and for each one you can earn a Transum Trophy.
Fractions can be compared by considering the meaning of the numerator and denominator values. A Fraction Wall may help. Alternatively the fractions could be converted to decimals for easier sorting with the help of the Decimals Line. A spreadsheet could also be used to help manage the conversion and sorting.
There are many more fraction activities on the Fraction Topic page.
