Addition and subtraction of fractions can be tricky and often requires additional practice and support to master. This packet focuses on addition/subtraction of fractions with like denominators. Includes practice decomposing fractions and evaluating expressions to find like fractions. Problems become progressively more challenging as the days progress and each day includes a word problem.
This product includes four days of practice pages and then a quiz which assesses student understanding. This can be used as morning work or for small group differentiated instruction. I have used this in my class as a quick and easy way to assess student understanding and gather data for our standards based report cards. The quiz can also be used as a pre assessment to determine present levels of understanding.
Aligns with Common Core State Standard for Math:
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
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.
