I've found that a lot of students I've taught started Fractions units feeling quite daunted and low in confidence. At first, fractions can seem a bit tricky to grasp but I think the best thing is that once students 'click' and realise that there are methods they can use to answer types of questions, the whole topic is suddenly demystified.

I made this cheat sheet as a reference sheet to show how mixed numbers and improper fractions relate and then show the step-by-step process for converting to improper fractions. I've included a few definitions and key mathematical knowledge that students will need to complete the included practice activities.
