When I was in second or third grade, an honor-roll student taught our math lessons instead our teacher. (I wonder is such a situation is possible today, when an ungraduated juvenal person teach in class)

She told us about fractions. She told us that if cannot to divide one number by another one without a remainder, a fractional number comes. Three divided by five is three to five (три делённое на пять это три пятых) or 3/5. Further, she said if we have the first number called numerator (числитель), is bigger than the second one called denominator (знаменатель), we extrude a divisible part to make a numerator less than a denominator. 7:5 is 1 and 2/5 (одна целая и две пятых), not 7/5. She suddenly stopped and said, “Well, actually it’s possible that numerator is bigger than denominator, but you will know that later.” I was a bit puzzled and slightly worried. What does she say? How is it possible? When will we know that? (Don’t let an ungraduated person teach a lesson.) The time intervened. I learned that there are irregular fractions… and decimals … and it’s possible to divide by nil… more and more. Math wasn’t my favorite subject in school, but I loved it in university (I understood it better than the other students did)

When I was in second or third grade, an honor-roll student taught our math lessons instead of our teacher.

(I wonder whether such a situation [is/would be] possible today, that a [juvenile/student] who has yet to graduate [himself] could teach in class.)

I wonder whether it would be possible today for a juvenile to teach in class?

She told us that if one number cannot be divided by another one without a remainder, a fractional number results.

Three divided by five is three over five (три делённое на пять это три пятых) or 3/5.

She also said that if the first number, called the numerator (числитель), is bigger than the second one, called the denominator (знаменатель), we extract the divisible part to make the numerator less than the denominator.

7:5 is 1 and 2/5 (одна целая и две пятых), not 7/5.

1 1/12 is what's called a mixed fraction.

7/5 is what's called an improper fraction.

She suddenly stopped and said, “Well, actually it’s possible that the numerator be bigger than the denominator, but you will find out about that later.” I was a bit puzzled and slightly worried.

What is/was she talking about?

This is the common way to express bewilderment and lack of understanding in such an instance.

"What does she say?" is more appropriately used when you literally want to know what someone says:

Person one: I talked with mom today.

Person two: Oh yea? What does she say?

When will we find out?

(Don’t let a student teach a lesson.) The time intervened.

The time intervened? I'm not sure what you mean here. The time passed?

I learned that there are irregular fractions… and decimals … and that it’s possible to divide by zero… more and more.

Math wasn’t my favorite subject in primary school, but I loved it in college/university (I understood it better than had before)

...in the intervening years - за прошедшие годы; в период между

Eight days intervened - Прошло восемь дней.

It seems, English speakers are surprising too.

"The keystroke appears to have failed to take" - It's shame, but I wasn't able to understand the phrase without Google )

When I was in second or third grade, an honor-roll student taught our math lessons instead of our teacher.

I don’t know what an honor-roll student is! An American term, I suppose.

The US and the UK are divided by a common language!

Here we’d say “maths” but of course both are correct. ( I must be in a ‘splitting hairs’ mood today)

(I wonder isf such a situation is possible today, when an undergraduated juvencal person teach in class)

An undergraduate is a student while they are studying.

She told us that if we cannot to divide one number by another one without a remainder, this is called a fractional number comes.

Three divided by five is three tover five (три делённое на пять это три пятых) or 3/5.

Furthermore, she said if we have the first number, called the numerator (числитель), is bigger than the second one, called the denominator (знаменатель), we extract thude a divisible part to make thea numerator less than thea denominator.

She suddenly stopped and said, “Well, actually it’s possible for theat numerator tois be bigger than the denominator, but you will fiknd outw about that later.” I was a bit puzzled and slightly worried.

What does/did she mesany?

How is ithat possible?

When will we fikndow that out?

I learned that there are irregular fractions… and decimals … and that it’s possible to divide by zernil… mo...re and much more.

Math wasn’t my favorite subject inat school, but I loved it inat university (I understood it better than thbe fothere)

A poor teacher or an unqualified one can certainly confuse pupils/ students.

I remember a qualified (but not in mathematics) teacher trying to explain the three- dimensional geometry of the sphere to my class! She confused us all, including herself!

When I typed (in Word) "maths", it was underlined with red as incorrect, so I was confused )

When I was in the second or third grade, an honor-roll student taught our math lessons (class) instead of our teacher.

(I wonder if such a situation it is still possible today, when for an ungraduated juvenal person (student) to teach in a class.)

or "I wonder if such a situation is still common today, where an ungraduated juvenal student teaches a class."
