First of all, what are improper fractions and mixed numbers anyways?
Improper Fraction ~ A fraction where the numerator (the top number) is larger than the denominator (the bottom number)
Mixed Number ~ A whole number with a fraction
Example: 7 31
Our son is learning to change improper fractions and mixed numbers. These are very important skills because they will be using this for the rest of their lives, or at least until they are done taking math classes. He needed something to keep his focus on the steps that he needed to take in order to complete these math problems.
I just made these simple step-by-step directions on how to complete them. There is even an example at the bottom of each. We just printed them out and he put them in his school binder with his other note pages.
