I created this product because it seems that adding fractions with unlike denominators is one of the more difficult concepts for students to remember and understand.
This worksheet has an example problem completed and six more problems for the student to do. There are "forms of 1" fractions, like 2/2 from which the students may choose to help them add the fractions. Some of the problems require that both fractions be renamed and some require that only one fraction has to be renamed.
The "prompts" are in the form of a graphic organizer where the students see where the "form of 1" fraction should be multiplied, where the renamed fractions go, and where the answer goes.
The worksheet may be completed independently, in pairs, or in groups.
A key is supplied.
