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.
(These instructions are completely customizable. After clicking "Use This Assignment With My Students", update the instructions on the Edit Tab of the assignment.)
