* Includes 48 task cards with the following concepts: Least Common Multiple, Greatest Common Factor, Simplifying, Adding/Subtracting Fractions/Mixed Numbers, and Word Problems *
ANSWER KEY INCLUDED :)
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
These 5th grade Fraction task cards are great to use for a game of Scoot, homework, centers, warm-ups, enrichment, examples in math journals/notes, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, or just for a fun learning activity! Copy your cards, laminate them, cut them out, and keep them for years to come! Then, just print a copy of the student answer sheet for each child in your class and your students are all set to go!
