A Survival Guide to Fractions

Fractions: Lesson 1

The Three Types of


A Fraction is A part of a whole that you care about!

A Fraction has a numerator and a denominator. In a proper fractionthe denominator is smaller than the numerator

In an improper fraction,the numerator is bigger than the denominator

Finally, in an mixed number, the number contains a whole number and a fractional amount

Fractions: Lesson 2


Improper Fractions

Mixed Numbers

These two different numbers are equal.

The "1" in the fraction represents 1 whole.That means that it will have 1 whole of the fraction and add the rest of it. In this case, the fraction would be 2/2 + the other 1/2, which equals 3/2.

Miss Monette,Some of the textboxes require you to edit the glog. Youneed to double-leftclick to get the scroll-ing thingy. This goesfor all my text boxes inall the poster pages.

Fractions: Lesson 3



But, you don't just multiply the 5 by 2. Since we have to make it equal, you also have tomultiply the 4 by 2

Some Handy Tips and TricksFirst, you should always look at the whole number. If the whole is bigger, then the number is bigger.2nd, you should look at the denominator. Usually if the denominator is smaller, the number is bigger.Then, If the denominator and the whole number are equal, look at the numerator.If the numerator is bigger, and the denominators + whole numbers are equal that number is greater. But, if everything is equal, that number is equivalent.You should also look at the relationship between the numbers and 0 and 1 whole.

Find the lowest common denominator. In this case, it would be the 10, because you can multiply 5 by 2 get to 10, and you can multiply 10 by 1 to get 10.

For a improper fraction, first you convert it to a mixed number. Then you look at which whole is bigger. The improper fraction is always bigger than the proper one.

Fractions: Lesson 4

Adding and Subtracting

You have find the common denominator to add the 2 fractions together.Then, all you have to do is add the numerators and keep the denominators

5/9 - 1/3

Again, find the common denominator to subtract the fractions. In this case, it would be 9, so the equation would be 5/9 - 3/9. Finally subtract the numerators and keep thenumerators.

Fractions: Lesson 5




You can go from fractions,to percents and decimals. 60 per cent which is per 100 and a decimal is also out of 1 whole (100).Plus 100 has 9 factors, and most of those factors have factors, so you can figure out how to get the denominator to 100 in no time!

Fractions: Lesson 6

A Ratio is a comparison between two same units.

A Rate is also a comparison between two units. BUT, the main difference is that it is a comparison between 2 different units.

Fractions: Lesson 7

Simplifying Fractions!The "How To" Guide1. Find the least common multiple of the numerator and denominator.2. In this case, it would be 3 because you can divide 2 by itself and 6 by 2, getting 1/3. 3. So, the correct answer would be 1 and 1/3, not 1 and 2/6.

5/6 + 1/3

4 oranges/ 1 apple

50 km/ 1h
