My students loved practicing adding mixed numbers using these circuit type activities!
There are two sets:
Set#1---adding mixed numbers with like denominators
Set #2---adding mixed numbers with unlike denominators.
The teacher places eight cards around the room. Each student goes any card to start. The student solves the problem on his/her recording sheet. When all students have solved the problem at that particular card, they check to see if they have the same answer. The group then finds the card around the room that has their correct answer on the bottom. That is the next card for students to solve. The process continues like a circuit that brings you back around the card you started with if problems are solved correctly and simplified. It takes the average class about 15 minutes to complete the circuit.
There are also two worksheets included.
Worksheet #1---adding like and unlike mixed numbers
Worksheet #2---adding unlike mixed numbers
Answer keys for both activities and worksheets are included.
