Types of Fractions (Improper, Proper, Equivalent, Mixed Number)

Help students distinguish types of fractions!

This foldable features four types of fractions: Improper Fractions, Proper Fractions, Equivalent Fractions & Mixed Numbers. It works well in a math journal or as a stand alone resource.

Each type is defined and an example is shown. This foldable can be run with all labels on. All your students need to do is cut, fold and glue. Or, you can run a blank template and a 'parts' page and allow your students to assemble. Still another choice would be to run just the cover and have students glue inside parts in or vice versa. It's really up to the teacher.

If you don't teach all four types or if you'd prefer to teach them one at a time, simply cut the four types apart and present each type one at a time! I try to make my foldables as versatile as possible.

When running copies, be sure to do a test print to make sure the front cover and inside are copied properly and fold up right.
