The focus of this lesson is to explain fractions and decimals to students that either have only just learned about fractions and decimals or have no experience with them. These problems will help students work out how fractions are created, what they represent, and will show them (visually) how and why they can be simplified. This is a lesson targeted at students in upper elementary or middle school.

Lesson plan directions are available at the end of the packet. Please review that information first before handing out the problems to students.
