These are the basic things we are going to talk about in our slide show.

What are fractions?
Fractions are parts of wholes.
They have a numerator (top number) and a denominator(bottom number).



Usually the numerator is smaller than the denominator these types of fractions are called proper fractions.
Example:

Sometimes the numerator can be larger than the denominator. These types of fractions are called improper fractions.
Improper fractions can be converted into mixed fractions.
Example:

Mixed fractions are fractions that have a whole number with a proper fraction. These fractions can be converted into improper fractions.
Example:

These are the steps to convert from mixed to improper and improper to mixed.
