Discussion points for teachers

1. Explain the mistake Roman might have made and provide the correct answer.
Discuss how to find the lowest common denominator to enable the fractions to be compared and ordered. Discuss the answer that Roman has given and why it might be incorrect

2. Help Rae, Roman and Trig press the fraction buttons in ascending order.
Discuss a suitable method for finding the lowest common denominator and then ordering the fractions.

3. What could the missing fraction be? Find three possibilities.
Discuss the parameters that have been set and a method for finding all possibilities. This question is open-ended for the children to explore.
