Activity Overview


Fractions with a numerator that is less than the denominator, such as 1/2 or 3/8, are called proper fractions. When the numerator is greater than the denominator, such as 4/3 or 15/2, we call these fractions improper fractions.

In this activity, students will write a fraction story that shows an example of improper fractions. The story may or may not include instructional or explanatory cells. Consider providing students with the scenario they should work from if they need more scaffolding. You can edit the example storyboard and use it as a second template for the assignment.
