In this activity, students use linear models to build their conceptual understanding of fraction addition and subtraction with like denominators
8 problems include fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators
Use during guided math, as a teacher-facilitated activity with the whole class, during tutoring or intervention, with small groups, or in centers.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, an example, an answer key, and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
TeachTransform creates fun math activities that get students involved in real math. We bring decades of education experience to the task, and we believe that students learn best when teachers and students are having fun.
