Product Description
Adding and Subtracting Fractions PowerPoint: Are you looking for a systematic PowerPoint that will introduce your students to multiplying and dividing with fractions and other fraction skills within the 5th grade math standards? If so, this highly interactive 60-slide PowerPoint may be exactly what you are looking for! It is fully animated. Answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher clicks the mouse.

The PowerPoint is highly interactive. It begins with a quick review of what students have already learned about adding and subtracting fractions (with common denominators) and simplifying fractions.

After the introduction section, there are four main sections in this PowerPoint:
1. Adding and Subtracting Fractions (with unlike denominators)
2. Adding Mixed Numbers (with unlike denominators & regrouping)
3. Subtracting Mixed Numbers (with unlike denominators & regrouping)
4. Fraction Word Problems (with adding & subtracting)

Each section contains many practice opportunities! Personally, I plan to introduce each of the sections above on different days.

(The PowerPoint is also fully animated, so that answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher has clicked the mouse.)

This PowerPoint contains TWO EXTRA BONUS FEATURES!! First, it includes a PowerPoint companion. Teachers simply print copies of the companion, and hand it out to students to write on as you progress through the PowerPoint. This companion can serve as a study guide or reference guide after the PowerPoint is completed. Second, it contains four exit slips. After each section of the PowerPoint, students complete a short exit ticket that is located at the bottom of each section of the PowerPoint companion. When you correct the exit slips, you are presented with immediate feedback on which students might need additional small group or individual instruction.

Check out the PREVIEW to view various PowerPoint slides, the PowerPoint companion, and the exit slips!! (Please remember, though, that the purchased PowerPoint will be animated.)
