The best way to learn...
Ninjas need regular practice and exercise to become great at what they do. In our bootcamp, you'll master fractions by completing our training videos, practice worksheets, quests, and "share your wisdom" activities. This second installment of Fraction Ninja Camp focuses on simplifying fractions, identifying mixed numbers on the number line, converting between mixed numbers and fractions, and comparing the relative size of two fractions.
Prerequisites and Other Resources
To get the most out of this course, make sure that your student is comfortable with the following skills:

Correctly use the terms "numerator" and "denominator".
Recognize equivalent fractions (eg. 3/4=6/8) and be able to explain them to others.
Locate a fraction on the number line between 0 and 1.
If your student isn't comfortable with those fraction skills, then you might consider signing up for Fraction Ninja Bootcamp 1.
If your student is comfortable converting between fractions and mixed numbers and comparing the size of fractions, then you might consider skipping to Fraction Ninja Bootcamp 3 (coming soon) where we learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.
