E You Did it! Way to go! In both pictures, the bar is divided into 4 equal parts and three parts are shaded. Even though they are not the same three parts, both still represent . Try Again Hint: Think about what the numerator and denominator are telling you. 2nd Hint: means there are 3

shaded parts out of 4 equal parts Vocabulary Fraction Equal parts of a whole Fractions that name the same amount Numerator The number ABOVE

the fraction line that tells how many parts of the whole are being considered Denominator The number BELOW the fraction line that tells how many EQUAL parts are in the whole Equivalent fraction Improper fraction When the numerator is greater than the denominator (e.g. 11/6)

Mixed number A whole number and a fraction (e.g. 2 or 3) Lets Review..... Fill in the blank using the vocabulary words in the word bank below. (Write your answers on your paper) Equivalent Fractions

Numerator Denominator Improper Fraction Fraction Mixed Number 12/3 is an example of an ____________________. In the number 3 is the ___________________. and 4/8 are ___________________. is a _____________. It

means that there are 5 equal pieces in the whole and 4 are being considered. A ______________ is a whole number and a fraction, like 2 The _______ ______ tells you how many equal parts are in the whole. Lets Review (Answers) 12/3 is an example of an improper fraction.

In the number 3 is the numerator. and 4/8 are equivalent fractions. is a fraction. It means that there are 5 equal pieces in the whole and 4 are being considered. A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction, like 2 The denominator tells you how many equal parts are in the whole. Equivalent Fractions Equivalent fractions are fractions that name the same amount. Take a

look at the picture. 1/2 = 2/4 1/2 = 3/6 5/10=4/8 Notice that all the fraction bars line up and they are all equivalent. Equivalent Fraction Review http://www.abcya.co m/fraction_tiles.htm Which fraction is

Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers Review Mixed Numbers 2 or 3 are both examples of mixed numbers. You can turn a mixed number into a fraction by multiplying and adding. Mixed Number into Fraction Multiply the whole

number and the denominator. Then, add the numerator. The denominator STAYS the same! Go to the next slide to check it out. Improper Fractions Are top heavy The numerator is greater than the denominator. Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers Look at the fraction

as a division sign. In the example, you would do 7 divided by 5. The quotient is the whole number, the remainder is the numerator and the denominator stays the SAME. Mixed Numbers to Improper fractions http://www.coolmath.com/prealgebra/01fractions/fractions-07-improper-03.htm Try Some~ Turn these improper fractions into mixed numbers 1) 11/3 2) 5/6

Turn these mixed numbers into improper fractions 3) 2 Dont hit this until you have 4) 1 FINISHED all the problems Try Some Answers Turn these improper fractions into mixed numbers 1) 11/3 11 3 = 3 r2 3 2/3 2) 5/6 56= 1r1 1 Turn these mixed numbers into improper fractions 3) 2 2 x3 +1 = 7/3 4) 1 1x8 +5 = 13/8

Add and Subtract Fractions with Like Denominators When adding or subtracting fractions with LIKE denominators, you add the numerators ONLY and keep the denominator the same. 3 1 = 31 = 2 4
