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

Then, you will explain to the students how to change improper fractions to mixed fractions.

Example: 3/2 = 1 1/2

You divide the numerator by the denominator.



You can check your answer by multiplying the denominator and the whole number. Then, you add the numerator. After that, you place that answer over the denominator = 1 x 2 and add 1 = 3/2

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