Converting Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions: 1 and 3/4

Converting Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions: 1 and 3/4

Developed By
National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video demonstrates how to use the set model to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions. It is important that students are exposed to converting fractions using this model because it is often how fractions are represented in the real world. Beginners and students who struggle may find the set model difficult to understand because the whole (1) is represented by a set of chips (4 chips in this example); therefore, students will benefit from explicit modeling and several opportunities to engage in guided and independent practice.
