Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same or related denominators

Elaborations

  • understanding the processes for adding and subtracting fractions with related denominators and fractions as an operator, in preparation for calculating with all fractions (Skills: Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • solving realistic additive (addition and subtraction) problems involving fractions to develop understanding of equivalent fractions and the use of fractions as operators (Skills: Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • modelling and solving additive problems involving fractions by using methods such as jumps on a number line, or by making diagrams of fractions as parts of shapes (Skills: Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
