Product Description

Goal:
To help students visualize the models for converting improper fractions and mixed numbers and understand the algorithm for each.

Teacher Preparation:
Print foldable and worksheet front to back.

Directions:
Students will use models, repeated addition, and an algorithmic shortcut to help them understand how to convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers.

TEKS
4.(3) Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent and generate fractions to solve problems. The student is expected to:
(A) represent a fraction a/b as a sum of fractions 1/b, where a and b are whole numbers and b > 0, including when a > b;
(B) decompose a fraction in more than one way into a sum of fractions with the same denominator using concrete and pictorial models and recording results with symbolic representations;

CCSS
4.NF.3b Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
