Understand that two fractions are equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or they have the same position on a number line.
Recognize simple equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size.
Record the results of fraction comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, using a visual fraction model.
