Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

When dealing with fractions, you eventually have to face that there is such a thing as an improper fraction. This might seem weird to kids who see a fraction as "just a number over another number representing a partial quantity". But sometimes you end up with a fraction that needs to be simplified into a mixed number. The idea of simplification has returned once again to show it is an important concept in mathematics.

Today's free 6th Grade Math video explains in an easy-to-understand manner how to recognize an improper fraction and how to turn it into the mixed number it should be.

Because of our late start, we went ahead and added the free 6th Grade Math worksheet that covers this week's lessons. Watch the videos and I'll bet you will have no problem breezing through the worksheet.

Everyone have a great weekend!
