Identifying Fractions
Page 1
• Represent parts or pieces of a whole.
• Shows the operation of division.

Numerator         5
Denominator       8
*Draw a picture to represent this fraction.
Equivalent Fractions
• Fractions that show the same amount
with a different amount of pieces. (equal)
• A fraction you get when you multiply or
divide the numerator and denominator by
the same number.

8 = 4      5 = 20     7x 3 =       32 ÷ 8 =
24 12      9 36      15x 3         72 ÷ 8
Simplest Form
• Showing the same amount by using the least number of
pieces.

• Taking a fraction and dividing the numerator and the
denominator by the same number (common factor) until
you can’t divide anymore. Try finding the GCF to divide by!

12 ÷         =
64 ÷

*Draw a picture in your foldable book.
Comparing Fractions
• When the denominators are the same, just
compare the numerators.
• When the numerators are the same, compare the
denominators-the larger the denominator, the
smaller the fractional pieces.
• When the numerators and the denominators are
different, find a common denominator by creating
equivalent fractions.

5      9        36       36         12      8
Ordering Fractions
• If the denominators are all the same, just
compare the numerators and put them in
order (least   greatest).

• If the numerators are the same, compare
the denominators and then put them in
order. (just like <, >, or =)

• If necessary, make them all equivalent
fractions and then put the original
fractions in order.
Examples:
3    14    8   5   5    5   4    7   12
27   27   27   8   6   11   6   15   30
• Add or subtract only the numerators in
the fractions because you can’t change
how many pieces they were originally
divided into.

2 + 5 =               36 - 18 =
10 10                 72 72
Identifying Mixed Numbers
• Represented by a whole number and a fraction
together.
• When there is more than a fraction shown or
a whole.
• In a division problem, the quotient represents
the whole number, the remainder represents
the numerator, and the divisor represents the
denominator.

=1¾
• Add or subtract the fractions first,
regroup into the whole number column,
if necessary.
• Then add or subtract the whole
numbers.

Improper Fractions
• When the numerator is larger than the
denominator.
• Shows the a mixed number too!
7        pieces
4 total sections
Converting Mixed Numbers &
Improper Fractions
• Changing a mixed number           improper
fraction. Magic “C”  +
1¾
x
1 x 4 =4               4+3=7                  7
4

*Always put the answer over the same denominator!
Converting Mixed Numbers &
Improper Fractions
• Changing a improper fraction    mixed
number .
7 means 7 ÷ 4 = 1 R 3         1¾
4
• The whole number in the quotient becomes
the “whole” part of the mixed number.
The remainder becomes the numerator and
the denominator stays the same (divisor
becomes the denominator).
