Lesson 9 and Lesson 10 are interchangeable. Lesson 10 may be easier to access for students, since determining whether a fraction is more or less than 1 is generally easier than determining whether a fraction is more or less than $$\frac{1}{2}$$, so you may decide to switch their order. However, Lesson 10 comes later in the sequence since it previews some work that students will see with fractions greater than 1 in Unit 6 and therefore having Lesson 10 build on Lesson 9 with increasing quantities mirrors a similar progression in Unit 6.
