A set of 30 cards displaying various improper fractions.
Use these flashcards in a variety of ways when teaching fractions to your students.
Some ways to use these cards:
- Have students determine the mixed number equivalent to each card.
- Have students flip over two cards and write a comparative statement using both fractions.
- Have students flip over a card and write a fraction that is greater than and less than the given fraction.
- Have students flip over a card and decompose the fraction three different ways.
These flashcards work beautifully when printed on cardstock and placed into a math center.

Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to ...
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions ref...
Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/...
