Add & Subtract Fractions with Different Denominators
This activity helps students learn the process of writing solutions to fraction problems. Students will fill in the blanks in numerical solutions that are already set up. The first few problems have fewer blanks. By the end of the activity, students fill in most of the solution.
8 fill-in-the-blank problems
