Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions

Mixed numbers and improper fractions is an interactive online activity to practice with examples and representations of these types of fractional numbers expressing ratios. Mixed and improper fractions are two types of fractions. A mixed number is when we have a whole number and a fraction together. For example, if you have 4 apples and then divide one of them into quarters, you could say you have 4 and 1/4 apples. The 4 apple part is the whole number and the 1/4 part is the fraction. On the other hand, an improper fraction is when the numerator (the top number) is greater than or equal to the denominator (the bottom number). For example, if you have 7 quarters of an apple, that can be written as 7/4, and is an improper fraction. It is easy to convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction. You simply divide the numerator by the denominator to get a whole number and then write the fraction with the remainder. For example, if we divide 7 by 4, we get 1 with a remainder of 3, so 7/4 can be written as 1 3/4. Math competencies: 5.NF.B.3, 3.NF.A.2b, 3.NF.A.2, 3.NF.A.1.
