This math lesson is designed for 6 to 12-year-old children. It guides the child to convert improper fractions into mixed fractions.

What are improper fractions?
When the numerator of a fraction is greater than or equal to the numerator, it is known as an improper fraction.

What are mixed fractions?
When a fraction is represented with the quotient and remainder, it is known as a mixed fraction.

Invite the child to prepare the material with you, as shown in the video. Introduce them to the different types of fractions and how to convert improper fractions into mixed fractions, using fractional cut-outs.

This practical method is a fun and innovative way to help them get a better understanding of the math concepts.
