Product Description
Looking for a fun way for students to demonstrate their knowledge of the properties of proper fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers? This fraction sort will allow students to classify and sort fractions as either proper, improper or mixed

This packet includes 72 sortable individual fraction cards (24 improper fractions, 24 proper fractions, 24 mixed numbers), and two different matching mats (one rectangular and designed to be used as separate mats, the other with all matching categories on the same page - provided in both colour and black and white).

To use this sort, simply print the fraction cards and cut them up. Students can then sort individual fraction cards into the appropriate category (or use the cards for other open-ended activities). Card colours are randomised to ensure students must know their fraction types to complete this activity (the colours don’t give anything away!).

All mixed numbers are printed together on the first pages (in case you don’t plan to use mixed numbers in this sort). Proper and improper fractions are joined and these fractions are spread out across four pages of cards.
