Numerator or Denominator: Which has more power in a fraction?

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 19th, 2024. Join today!


Students determine which has more power: a fraction's numerator or its denominator.


  1. First, they consider when comparing fractions, which has more power: the numerator or denominator.
  2. Then, they consider adding and subtracting fractions.
  3. They consider multiplying and dividing fractions.
  4. Finally, students will make an overall decision. Depending on what you'd like to do, students can expand their thinking into an advertisement, story, song, persuasive essay, or other product.
