Everything I know about fractions

Comparing fractions (common denominators)

  • First step: find a number to multiply with to be able to get the same denominator
  • Second step: multiply the numerator with the same number you multiplied with your denominator
  • Third step: add or subtract the top to get your final answer

Order fractions from least to greatest

  • First step: change the fractions to decimal form
  • Second step: look at which decimal is greater or smaller
  • Third place: place them in order ( BE CAREFUL WITH NEGATIVES )

Change a mixed fractions to an improper fraction

  • First step: get your denominator and multiply with the whole number
  • Second step: once you have multiplied, add the rest with your numerator
  • Third step: once you get your improper fraction, check to see if you need to reduce it
  • Fourth step: if you need to reduce, divide the numerator and denominator to the lowest term

Change an improper fraction to a mixed fraction

  • First step: you ask how many times the denominator can go into the numerator
  • Second step: in the example below the first one shows you the 3 goes into 10 three times then you add the remainder to the numerator which is 1
  • third step: if there was a negative number, you add the negative to the whole number

Add and subtract fractions

  • First step: if you already have the same denominator then you just need to add both of the numerators.
  • Second step: if you do not, find a common multiple and multiply the top as well.
  • Third step: you would do the same thing for subtracting
  • Fourth step: simplify by dividing both denominator and numerator to the lowest term.

Multiply fractions

  • First step: it isn’t very difficult because all you need to do is multiply straight ahead
  • Second step: when you get the sum, simplify to get the final sum

Divide fractions

  • First step: when you get a division question all you have to do is flip the fraction
  • Second step: once you flip one of the fractions, multiply to get the sun
  • Third step: once you get your sum, simply if needed.

Apply the order of operations

  • First step: all you really have to think about is BEDMAS
  • Second step: Simplify if needed.

Core Competencies

For my fractions project, I chose the communication Competencies because it shows my interaction with the knowledge that I have and the skills aswell. My communication Competencies shows my strengths and growth by showing how to solve and how to figure out different ways to solve questions.

  1. Nice job! I really like how you break every point into few steps, which is clear and easy to understand as well as tip when it is needed. I also like your format of this post with picture examples, since it is organize and neat. The examples are all right and nice, and the order of the operations works with fractions as well. Overall nicely done!
