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.

finding the LCD or lowest common denominator for two or more denominators. Lowest common denominator or LCD means trying to find the smallest denominator two or more denominators have in common.

1. you can multiply the denominators together.
2. find the factors for each number and see which one
fits them both.
