Skills Homework!

Wednesday, April 8, 2009
This is a homework for Skills, Mr.Herbeck told us to find the difference between to fractions. There are 2 questions and I'll show you which one is bigger and why is it bigger.
They are 2/3 or 4/6
and 1/8 or 1/4

Lets start with 2/3 or 4/6.
Which one is Bigger?
Picture


Hmm....Their both the same. But which would you rather say? 4/6 or 2/3?
I think you would rather say 4/6 because it is more accurate. Why? because if you change the fraction into the decimal. 2/3 would be 0.666667 and 4/6 would be 0.66666667.
Wow its still the same? Well I think you should say 4/6 because its really accurate and most people will say 4/6 instead of 2/3. I bet you 100%!

On to the last one. which is 1/8 and 1/4
Picture:


Hmm..1/4 is bigger than 1/8? why is that? It's because the Bottom number is the whole number and the top number is the prices, and so pretend its a pizza? What would you rather it to yourself? 1/8 or 1/4?
You would pick 1/4 because it is bigger than 1/8!!

    Heey, Vincent.
    Great job on your post! I really liked your pictures. and I also liked your use of colour. And I liked how you explained how to do everything you helped me learn a lot.
    But you did make mistakes. First of all you spelled Mr. Harbeck's name with an E. And some of your sentences don't make sense. Like the one that says "There are 2 questions and I'll show you which one is bigger and why is it bigger." What is it? I wont know unless you tell me in your post. Also, you got some grammar/spelling/capitalization/punctuation errors.
    But other than than I'd say you did a good job. ☺
