Improper Fraction is a fraction in which numerator is greater or equal than denominator. In other words improper fractions are fractions that are not proper.

Examples of improper fractions are 5/5, 8/7, 125/3.

Fractions that are not improper are 1/5, 7/19, 127/128.

Another example of improper fraction is following.

Suppose you have two rectangles. You divide each of them into 7 parts. You paint all 7 parts of first rectangle and 4 parts of second rectangle.

In this case you paint 7+4=11 out of 7 parts: 11/7.

If we paint 14 parts instead of 7 then we would obtain 14/7=2 rectangles.

Since in improper fraction numerator is greater or equal than denominator then improper fraction is greater or equal than one.
