## Multiple Uses for These Adding and Subtracting Fractions Worksheets

These adding and subtracting fractions worksheets can be used in numerous ways in your primary school maths classroom. Here are just a handful of suggestions from our experienced teacher team:

• Independent Practice – Once students know how to add and subtract fractions, provide them with a copy of the worksheets to complete independently.
• Homework Task – Send the worksheets home as a homework assignment. Have the worksheets signed by a parent; this ensures parents have sighted the worksheets and are therefore being  informed of the concepts students are addressing in class.
• Formative Assessment – Once the students have completed the worksheets, use them as a formative assessment to gauge individual mastery and tailor future lessons accordingly.
