It's visual & fun to say & it really seemed to stick in the minds of kids. Here's how it works:Start at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times).

Brilliant way to make a mixed number to improper fraction

#### Grade Math, Math Fractions, Teaching Math, Math Ideas, Mixed Fraction, Mixed Numbers, Improper Fractions, School Math

#### Multiply, Add Denominator - This is really the traditional procedure which is okay IF students have the conceptual understanding that 3 wholes divided into 5ths and 1/5 extra is 16 fifths. I would use MANY pictures and models for seeing the relationship between mixed numbers and improper fractions before I taught them MAD!

#### This tip makes it easy for students to remember how to change a mixed number to an improper fraction. Display a poster labeled with the acronym shown and explain what each letter stands for: M for multiply, A for add, and D for denominator. Then, using the example, walk students through each step: multiply the whole number by the denominator, add the numerator, and keep the denominator the same. When they forget, all you have to say is “Make it MAD!”
