Made some new resources! Last week I made the fatal mistake of assuming prior knowledge with a class I am covering once a week. We were set to do multiplying fractions and I mistakedly assumed they would have prior knowledge of improper fractions and mixed numbers.. big mistake! Anyway, quickly remedied the situation and decided I would make sure the one lesson we have together counts so I've put together a worksheet and match cards covering mixed numbers and improper fractions.
The match cards will be used first, I have put in the visual alongside the improper fraction and finally the mixed number. Pictures below:
Final task for the lesson I've put together a worksheet using the 'Got it, Smashed it, Mastered it' theme. First section looking at the visual building on from the match card activity. Final sections then ask students to convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers. A few extension questions thrown in there also for good measure!
