#### Yesterday and maybe a couple days ago, we have been adding/subtracting basic fractions, with like (same) denominators. Today, we are going learn what to do when our numerator is bigger than our denominator. But first, lets review!!!

5/10 + 3/10 =

3/4 - 2/4 =

14/20 - 11/20 =

#### Did you get them right? Good Job! Now we are going to learn about two new vocabulary words: Mixed Number and Improper Fraction

Look at the numerator! Do you notice something weird? This is called an Improper fraction. We have more than one whole.

Another way to write 5/4, it to write it as a mixed number (as shown above). Look at the picture above! How many wholes do we see? Now, what is left? Put them together. 1 whole and 1/4 is 1 1/4!

#### They are both the same! They are just written differently. It is important to know how to write them both ways! Don't worry we will practice and you'll be a pro!

#### Let's first learn to how to go from Improper fraction to a mixed number!

How many wholes (groups of 3) can fit into 20? Or 20 parts makes how many wholes? If you remember the --- in the fraction also means divide!

#### Now you try! Look at the example above and rewrite the improper fractions as mixed numbers in your notebook!

#### 20/6 =

#### 17/4 =

#### 106/10

#### How did you do? Did you get the right answer? Are there any questions?!? Ready to try it the other way?

THE DENOMINATOR STAYS THE SAME!!

#### What do you think? Easy enough? Can you do it? Lets try! Write the following mixed numbers into improper fractions. You can use your fraction kit if you need to.

#### 4 3/5 =

#### 7 5/8 =

#### 10 1/2 =

#### How did you do? Did you get them write correctly? You guys did awesome today!! I am proud of you!
