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.
