Improper fractions, mixed numbers, reduced terms, and denominators....oh my! We are in the midst of our unit on fractions and decimals. I trust that your student delivered the parent letters about this unit. 

Here are the big topics that we have focused on thus far:
  • Finding fractional parts of a whole
  • Adding and subtracting fractions
  • Comparing and ordering fractions
  • Understanding proper and improper fractions
  • Understanding mixed numbers
  • Reducing fractions to lowest terms
