  1. My group answered the question by using a calculator and finding the highest and the lowest number/sign in the paper. We also had team work to get things done quickly by dividing the jobs equally among ourselves.

    1. Yes, the calculator is most helpful here, when dealing with numbers that are represented differently.

      One point not quite clear: What do you mean by "finding the highest and the lowest number/ sign"?

      As of team work, can you describe what kind of 'jobs' are divided amongst the members?

  2. My group put 100% at the top and -2 at the bottom. We then fit in the rest of the numbers.

    1. In other words, you are assuming 100% is the largest amongst all the numbers, while -2 is the smallest?
      How do you know?

  3. We worked together to put the numbers in the right order. The trick is to change it all to one type such as all decimals or all fractions.

    1. Good strategy - to convert the numbers to ONE type of representation, either decimals or fractions.
      Next question would be, which is a better option for comparison, and why: Decimals or Fractions?
