In this lesson, students learn to write both a mixed number and an improper fraction that are represented by the same point on a number line.
In this lesson, students learn to rewrite an improper fraction as a mixed number by dividing the numerator by the denominator.
In this lesson, students learn to rewrite a mixed number as an improper fraction by first converting the whole number to a fraction, then adding the two resulting fractions.
When working problems in this lesson, students must show that they understand the conversion process by first writing the whole number as a fraction, then copying the fraction from the mixed number, then adding the two fractions. Each step in the process is evaluated to ensure that the student understands the conceptual basis for the process.
In this lesson, students rewrite mixed numbers as improper fractions without having to show their work in the interim steps. Only the final answer is entered and evaluated.
