In the 'Max Maths' workbook for Year 4, students are presented with exercises to enhance their understanding of comparing and ordering fractions. Practice 3 begins with an activity where children write down the fraction represented by the coloured part of different shapes. This visual representation helps them grasp the concept of fractions in a tangible way. Once the fractions are identified, the next task requires students to compare pairs of fractions. They use the fraction chart from the first question as a reference to determine which fraction is greater or smaller, and then they insert the correct comparison signs '>' or '<' between them. Examples of pairs they compare include 1/3 and 1/2, 1/2 and 5/12, and 5/6 and 3/4, among others.

The workbook continues with exercises that challenge students to select the smallest fraction from a given set. For instance, they must choose between fractions such as 1/4, 3/4, and 1/2 or 4/5, 1/5, and 5/5, encouraging them to analyze and understand the relative sizes of different fractions. Finally, the students are tasked with ordering a series of fractions from smallest to largest and placing them correctly on a number line. This exercise includes sets of three fractions, such as 1/6, 1/2, and 5/6, and requires students to think critically about the value of each fraction to determine their correct position. Through these activities, the workbook aims to build a solid foundation in understanding and manipulating fractions for Year 4 students.
