Today we continued working on yesterdays lesson. We began by taking up the homework and then completing some worksheets involving changing a mixed number into an improper fraction and vice versa. A proper fraction is a fraction where the smaller number is the numerator and a bigger number is the denominator. For example, ½, 3/5, 5/8. An improper fraction is when the numerator has a bigger number and the denominator has a smaller number. For example, 12/7. A mixed number has both a whole number and a fraction. For example, 1 ¼. Please see below instructions on how to change mixed numbers into fractions and vice versa. I have handed out the same instructions to the students and they have placed it in their math duo tangs.
Please use the links below to watch the videos and assist with homework.
