Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions
The below QuickQuestion Interface © generates random questions on converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions.
Choose a maximum value for the denominator of your fractions, and then decide if you want to convert from Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers, from Mixed Numbers to Improper Fractions, or choose Random to get a random selection of each type.
When typing answers, fractions should be written using the slash key (e.g. 3/2). For typing a mixed number, type the whole number part, then a single space before writing the rest of the fraction (e.g. 1 1/2). The format is very important, especially for giving a mixed number.
There is a 10QQI version of this activity.

Ideas for Teachers
The QQI activities are a great way to get all students working. Put random questions on the board, and then get students to answer them on miniwhiteboards. Once all students have answered, and held up their solutions (with working), reveal the answer to see if they were right. Discuss any misconceptions from the working they have shown, or if they have all got it correct, move on to another question (changing the options to make if more difficult if necessary).
