Objectives: how to convert mixed fractions into improper fractions
Mixed fraction: A whole number and a fraction combined into one “mixed” number. Example: 1½ (one and a half) is a mixed fraction.
Improper fraction: A fraction where the numerator (the top number) is greater than or equal to the denominator (the bottom number). So it is usually “top-heavy”. Example: 5/3 (five thirds) and 9/8 (nine eighths) are improper fractions.
