Lesson Summary:

This lesson on mixed numbers and improper fractions teaches us the difference between the two and how to convert between them. Improper fractions have a numerator that is either bigger or equal to the denominator, whereas proper fractions have a smaller numerator than the denominator. We can convert improper fractions to mixed numbers, which is a whole number mixed with a fraction, and vice versa by dividing the numerator by the denominator, or by counting the number of parts shaded in a picture.

Lesson Description:
