# Identifying Fractions

In this lesson, students will learn about proper, improper, and mixed fractions.

First, you will copy the worksheet so that each student will have one.

Then, you will explain to the students about proper, improper, and mixed fractions.

Examples:

Proper Fractions - The numerator, which is the top number, is smaller than the denominator, which is the bottom number. Example: 2/5

Improper Fractions - The numerator is larger than the denominator. Example: 13/2

Mixed Fractions - Mixed Fractions have a whole number and a fraction. Example: 1 2/3

After that, you will pass out the worksheet so that students can work on them independently.
