Display Information About the Different Types of Fractions

Introducing our new printable poster that helps students master the concepts of proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers! This colorful and eye-catching poster is designed to be a helpful visual aid for any classroom.

The poster features clear and concise definitions of each term and visual representations to aid understanding. 

Proper fractions are defined as fractions where the numerator is less than the denominator, while improper fractions are those where the numerator is greater than the denominator. Mixed numbers are also included, which are a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction.

Each concept is illustrated with a clear and easy-to-read example, making it simple for students to grasp the differences between these different types of fractions. 

Not only is this poster a great teaching tool, but it also makes a fun and colorful addition to any classroom. Hang it up as a reminder for students to refer to as they work through their math lessons, or use it as a starting point for discussions on fractions.

How to Make the Most of Your Types of Fractions Poster
