**How to Model Mixed Numbers **

For some students, breaking their perception of a fraction as only part of a whole can be hard. Concretely modeling improper fractions and mixed numbers in various ways can help students extend their understanding of fractions more than 1. Here are some ways you can model mixed numbers in your classroom:

**Pizza Charts****:**Create paper or cardboard pizzas divided into slices to represent improper fractions and mixed numbers. For instance, a whole pizza represents 1, and you can cut a few slices to represent the fractional part. For even**more**fun, use real pizza!**Number Line****:**Use painter’s tape to create a large number line on the floor. Have students place cards representing improper fractions and mixed numbers along the number line.**Cooking Materials****:**Use measuring cups or spoons to model mixed number and improper fraction equivalencies. For example, you can show that scooping 1 cup and then ¼ cup of flour is the same as scooping with the ¼ cup five times.
