• Proper fraction: A fraction less than 1. 3/4
• Improper fraction: A fraction greater than 1, 16/3 = 5 1/3 Note that improper fractions needs to turn into a mixed number.
• Mixed number: Fraction that has a whole attached to it, 3 2/7.
• Improper mixed number: Improper fraction attached to a whole, 6 7/2 = 9 1/2.
• Fraction equal to a whole: This happens if the numerator is a multiple of the denominator, 50/10 = 5.
• Simplified fraction: A fraction in its simplist form, 3/8. Note that all unit fractions are in its simplist form.
• Unsimplified fraction: A fraction that can be simplified, 6/9 = 2/3. To simplify the fraction, find the greatest common factor (GCF) and divide it by the greatest common factor.
• Unit fraction: A fraction that has a 1 in its numerator, 1/5. Note that unit fractions cannot be simplified
